The 14th Street Y 2018 Annual PURIM Gala

Raised More Than $355,000

On Thursday, March 1, 2018, the 14th Street Y hosted its 2018 PURIM Gala at Cipriani, 25 Broadway, NYC, raising more than $355,00. Proceeds from the Gala help to advance the 14th Street Y’s mission as a hub of creativity, community programming, and Jewish culture in downtown Manhattan, providing scholarships, developing enrichment programs, and enhanceing the lives of more than 26,000 people who walk through the doors each year.

An incredible show of support from the community, more than 250 attendees gathered for cocktails, dinner, and entertainment as the 14th Street Y honored founding Board Member and philanthropist Harvey Schulweis. The Gala was held at Cipriani, 25 Broadway, NYC. In keeping with the time-honored Purim tradition of masquerade, guests were invited to indulge in wearing Purim-inspired masks and accessories.

“It is no exaggeration to say that Harvey Schulweis is the linchpin that allowed the renewal of the 14th Street Y, and the renaissance of Downtown Jewish life, to succeed,” said Rabbi Shira Koch Epstein, Executive Director of the 14th Street Y.

 “And now we are entering the next phase. The success of the Y and its incredible growth has led to a challenge that we have the privilege to address. We are outgrowing our building and need to explore how and where to find a new home that can house the downtown JCC of the 21st Century,” said Harvey Schulweis, Chair Emeritus of the 14th Street Y.

As they entered, guests were welcomed with an art exhibition, Portraits of the 14th Street Y by Bridget Badore, featuring images of honoree Harvey Schulweis, the Gala Co-Chairs, and members of the 14th Street Y community. The cocktail hour continued with the jazz and global sounds of the band SHA’AR, who set the tone for the evening. Comedian, actor, writer, singer and 14th Street Y After-School staff member Rachel Pegram provided a genuine, comic introduction to the program as dinner began. Cirque-tacular presented a breath-taking rendition of The Story of Purim through one-of-a-kind live art and acrobatic performances by stilt walkers and aerial acrobats soared through Cipriani’s. As honoree Harvey Schulweis received his award, a beautiful Seder plate by artist Marc Chagall was presented to him by his good friend, James Schreiber. The evening concluded with an impromptu Hora and dance party, with music by DJ Rabbi Darkside, and guests left with delicious hamentashen courtesy of Colson Patisserie.

“I’m someone who deeply appreciates the 14th Street Y not just for what it gives the greatest city in the world, New York City, but my own family as well,” said Alan van Capelle, President and CEO of Educational Alliance.

The 14th Street Y is a vibrant community center grounded in the belief that contemporary Jewish sensibilities can be a source of inspiration, connection, and learning for the individuals and families it serves throughout New York City’s East Village and beyond.

Purim is one of the most joyous and fun holidays on the Jewish calendar. Celebrated with feasts, drink and revelry, it celebrates standing up for what you believe in and calls us to honor others through giving gifts and charity.
