A Women's Philanthropy Journey

Question: How did you first become involved in the Jewish community?

Amy Jonas: “There were very few Jewish people living in northern Palm Beach County when I moved here. I first became involved for socializing and networking. From there, I was asked to chair events and participate in a community mission to Israel. As I became more involved, different activities fulfilled a professional purpose or were intellectually stimulating to me. I have seen how many programs and partner agencies have developed in our community. I also see tremendous potential for the future.”

Vivian Lieberman: “I was involved in my synagogue, but I wasn’t brought up in a home where Judaism or charity was a priority. I first went to Israel on a mission with 1,300 people. There, we saw all of what Federation supported. When I moved to Palm Beach County, people reached out to me and I became involved and engaged. Once I became involved, I was hooked. I really believe in giving back and the idea of a woman’s gift. I am my own person. And here in Palm Beach County, women have a big voice.”
