65th Women of Achievement Awards Celebration

Don’t miss the 65th Women of Achievement Awards Celebration broadcast on Nine PBS on September 14 at 7 pm. The 2020 Women of Achievement were originally scheduled to be recognized at the Women of Achievement Luncheon at the Ritz-Carlton on May 12, and later on September 15, but the luncheon was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, the honorees are being recognized in an hour-long awards celebration on Nine PBS. Five of this year’s honorees are Jewish, including Susan Balk ( Impactful Leadership), Debbie Caplin (Pet Therapy Advocacy), Jennifer Hillman (Creative Philanthropy), Susan Katzman (Women’s Empowerment), and Joan Lipkin (Arts & Social Justice). The celebration includes this year’s honorees walking the red carpet, receiving their awards, and presentations by Women of Achievement President Marian Nunn (Class of 2013), Luncheon Chair Joni Karandjeff (Class of 2008), and presenting sponsors KMOX, Ladue News and St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The awards celebration also includes additional segments highlighting the history of Women of Achievement, its role in the St. Louis area, and acknowledgement of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. A heartwarming portion of the program is individual segments dedicated to each honoree. The segments include interviews with honorees’ volunteer colleagues and/or family members, and draw attention to each honoree’s years of volunteer service and the impact of that service and leadership. The 65th Women of Achievement Awards Celebration’s mistress of ceremonies is Carol Daniel of KMOX, and the celebration was filmed at the Fabulous Fox Theatre in advance of the September 14 broadcast. The chair of the 2020 Women of Achievement Awards Celebration is Joni Karandjeff (Class of 2008) and the vice chair is Elizabeth Mannen (Class of 2017).

‘The Women’s Balcony’ Film Screening

Join Shir Hadash Reconstructionist Community for our next Third Shabbat learning program, a screening and discussion of the Israeli film “The Women’s Balcony.” An accident during a bar mitzvah celebration leads to a rift between the men and women in a devout community in Jerusalem in this rousing, good-hearted comedy. Awash in Jerusalem’s distinctive glow, “The Women’s Balcony” is a warm, poignant portrait of a modern community struggling to balance protocol with practical, progressive values – at once rebellious and respectful in spirit. The film is in Hebrew with English subtitles. All are welcome. RSVP to Carol, stlshirhadash@gmail.com. For more information, visit...
