 The Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services (The Jewish Board), New York State’s largest human services nonprofit,  honored longtimesupporters Erica Schwartz, Emily Steinman and Fred & Ann Yerman at the organization’s 2016 Spring Gala on Thursday, April 7, 2016, at The Plaza Hotel. The event attractedmore than 350 guests and raised more than $1 million for The Jewish Board. “The Jewish Board thrives because of the commitment of individuals like those we  honored on April 7,” said David Rivel, Chief Executive Officer of The Jewish Board. “Without their support and leadership, a year like the last, during which we successfully absorbed $75 million in new programs from FEGS, would not have been possible.” 

At the Spring Gala, board president Alice Tisch  presented Ms. Schwartz with the Saul Z. Cohen Leadership Award in recognition of her outstanding board leadership in the areas of governance and fundraising.  A Jewish Board trustee since 2005, she is Vice-Chair of the Governance/Nominating Committee and was until recently Chair of the Early Childhood Committee, on which she still serves. Under her stewardship, the popular Ladies Night Out event has raised more than $500,000 for The Jewish Board’s early childhood programs. Mrs. Tisch presented Fred and Ann Yerman and their daughter Emily Steinman with the Madeleine Borg Lifetime Service Award.  A former President and the current Honorary President of The Jewish Board, Mr. Yerman is a longtime trustee who joined the board in 1981.

Ann Yerman is a trustee of 
Westchester Jewish Community Services, a sister agency, and the couple is active in UJA-Federation. The Yermans’ daughter Emily Steinman has continued the family tradition of smart, committed and thoughtful philanthropy by serving as a trustee of The Jewish Board and as Co-Chair of its Government Relations Committee. Saul Z. Cohen, for whom the Saul Z. Cohen Leadership Award is named, was President of the Jewish Board of Guardians and instrumental in helping the organization merge with Jewish Family Service to form the present-day Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services (The Jewish Board). 

Madeleine Borg, for whom the Madeleine Borg Lifetime Service Award is named, was a lifelong advocate for children and for greater access to mental health services. She served as President of what is now The Jewish Board from 1942 to 1952, was an early organizer and leader of the Jewish Federation, and founded America’s Big Sister movement. For more than 140 years, the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services (The Jewish Board) has been helping New Yorkers realize their potential and live as independently as possible. We promote resilience and recovery by addressing all aspects of an individual’s life, including mental and physical health, family, employment and education. Across the five boroughs and in Westchester, we serve more than 43,000 New Yorkers from all religious, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds each year. For more information, please visit
