With the arrival of spring, Shalom Austin Women’s Philanthropy was full of exciting activities in April. Taste of Women's Philanthropy, a program to educate about Women’s Philanthropy and everything Shalom Austin, came to an end with the fourth course hosting an incredible panel of women leaders sharing tips for involvement and their personal journeys toward leadership.

At the Woman of Valor and Mosaic Co-Chair’s Appreciation Luncheon, Women’s Philanthropy brought together leaders from over 20 years to celebrate past and current Woman of Valor recipients as well as previous Mosaic Luncheon co-chairs. This special gathering gave attendees opportunities to reminisce on everything these women have done to help bring the community to where it is today and to prepare for what was an incredible IGNITE! program for the entire community.

Women’s Philanthropy assists with Senior Adult programming every year and this year more than 100 Women's Philanthropy volunteers had a wonderful time putting together a Passover celebration for the more than 200 guests at the Seder. ■
