Entrepreneur, Philanthropist, and Bestselling Author as Choices Keynote

Celebrate the impact of women’s philanthropy with hundreds of Jewish women who have made the choice to support our community.  

Choices is back on Sunday, November 7, 2021 for its 17th year with a virtual event you won’t want to miss. If we learned anything from the past 19 months, it’s that our community will rise to a challenge and come out stronger than ever before. This year, Choices is celebrating our community of outstanding women who gave generously of their time and tzedakah during the pandemic, and not only helped our community survive but thrive.

You may know this year’s keynote speaker, Jill Zarin, best from her role on Real Housewives of New York City, but what you may not know is that she feels a deep sense of responsibility to her community and is well known for her philanthropic efforts.

Jill’s passion for philanthropy comes from personal experience; both her daughter and step-son have been diagnosed with arthritic diseases, and she has made it her mission to raise money and awareness for people living with these diseases.

When the pandemic first hit, PPE was in high demand and getting it into hands of those that need it the most like frontline workers and first responders was a challenge. With an entrepreneurial mindset and a desire to give back, Jill and her daughter Ally created a successful mask business where for every masked purchased one was donated to frontline workers, with thousands of donations to date.

Jill is also a successful entrepreneur and a bestselling author, having co-written “Secrets of a Jewish Mother” with her mother and sister. She brings a great sense of humour, a positive outlook, and an entrepreneurial spirit that is guaranteed to inspire and be a whole lot of fun!

Donate your $54 Ticket

Last year, Choices guests raised an additional $10,000 for our community by donating the $54 fee that would have been the ticket price had the event been held in person. Since this year’s event is virtual, we hope you will continue this act of tzedakah that means so much to so many people. When you register, please consider directing the $54 you would have normally spent to attend this event to support food security, community security, tuition subsidies, and camperships.
