THE EVENT: Celebrating Our Vibrant Jewish Community with Henry Winkler


From synagogues, partner agencies and schools, and from longtime donors of all ages to newcomers, hundreds from throughout South Palm Beach County’s diverse Jewish community will come together on February 23, 2016 at Congregation B’nai Torah to acknowledge and celebrate all the good we do together. They’ll also hear from Henry Winkler, an iconic Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning actor (as well as a producer, author and adventurer) best known for his unforgettable, award-winning role of The Fonz on Happy Days. THE EVENT festivities will kick off at 6:30 pm with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a showcase of the Jewish community’s wealth of resources.


Beginning at 7:30 p.m., the program will remind the audience of how much the South Palm Beach County Jewish community’s help means for neighbors and the global Jewish family. They’ll also hear about recipients whose lives have been changed through this assistance, demonstrating the power of this community to make a difference. In his own humorous way, Winkler will tell us his Jewish journey amid anecdotes from his decades as a popular actor (see his bio below).


“Last year, THE EVENT drew more than 600 people from throughout our vibrant, diverse Jewish community who came together to celebrate how we are able to do so much for so many,” said Nancy Gefen, who is co-chairing the evening, together with her husband, Greg, and Chuck and Gayle Lichtman, along with Founding Chairs Debra & Larry Halperin. “With an even wider array of synagogue, school and agency partners and committed volunteers, more of our neighbors are motivated to come together this year to support our community’s efforts.”


“We are excited to hear from guest speaker Henry Winkler, a legendary actor and producer whose remarks promise to be both entertaining and inspiring,” said Chuck Lichtman. “There’s a real renaissance taking place in our Jewish community, and THE EVENT will be a unique occasion to celebrate and amplify this growing awareness and pride in how we FEED, PROTECT, TEACH, INSPIRE, SAVE and COMFORT so many. It’s an amazing opportunity to celebrate our collective strength and our unsurpassed potential to do even more, while educating and engaging the future generation in our vital mission of giving back.”


This special night benefiting the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County will offer great food (dietary laws observed), entertainment and company for a couvert of $95 per person. A minimum household contribution of $365 to the 2016 Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County Annual Campaign is required to attend. Congregation B’nai Torah is located at 6261 SW 18th St. in Boca Raton. Valet parking will be available.


Early registration is recommended. Online registration is available at . For more information, call 561.852.5031 or email

Henry Winkler

Henry Winkler’s portrayal of The Fonz for 10 seasons on Happy Days (1974-1984) made him one of the most recognized actors in the world. He won two consecutive Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in a Comedy Series (1976 and 1977), and three Emmy nominations in the same category. He was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the leather jacket the character wore has hung in The Smithsonian since 1980. Fonzie’s lunch box was recently added to the exhibit.


In 2003, he began writing a series of children’s novels with his partner, Lin Oliver, entitled, Hank Zipzer: The World’s Greatest Under-Achiever. The books are inspired by Winkler’s struggle throughout his education due to his learning challenges and have appeared on several best seller lists including The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times, among others. In 2011, he published a collection of anecdotes and heartfelt observations entitled I Never Met an Idiot on the River. The book is a collection of the lessons and photos Winkler gathered while fly fishing in Montana. Continuing his love for children’s books, Winkler released the first installment of a new series in January 2012 entitled Ghost Buddy #1: Zero to Hero.


Winkler will be starring in NBC’s celebrity adventure show Better Late Than Never, premiering in 2016. Taking a note from The Amazing Race, Winkler, alongside Terry Bradshaw, William Shatner and George Foreman,will be heading across Asia in search of new adventures and life-changing experiences in the highly anticipated new reality series.
