UJA-Federation of New York in Westchester to Celebrate

UJA-Federation in New York in Westchester will celebrate Scarsdale residents Rikki and Barry Kaplan and Allison and Ben Friedland for their commitment to philanthropy, community and leadership and UJA’s impact in Westchester on Thursday, March 5 at 6:30 pm at the Capitol Theatre, Port Chester at its annual celebration.


Westchester Celebration 2020, a community-wide celebration open to all, will feature strolling entertainers, a bountiful buffet and luscious libations with musical entertainment by Shake, Rattle & Roll dueling pianos.


Rikki and Barry Kaplan believe deeply in UJA’s mission and have been long time lay leaders at UJA-Federation, as well as active participants in several Jewish and other philanthropic causes, in the New York area and beyond.


Allison and Ben Friedland both grew up in families who understood the importance and impact of philanthropy. Since moving to Westchester in 2007, they have immersed themselves in the Jewish community and have taken on a variety of leadership roles to give back and to teach their children the tradition of tikkun olam.

“These outstanding leaders have enriched our community and embody the values of UJA-Federation,” organization officials said.


Jane and Norman Alpert (Larchmont), Mauri Chotin-Zemachson (Scarsdale), Kate Eichel (Scarsdale), Randi Kreisler (Chappaqua), Marilyn Kneller-Rimsky and Neil Rimsky (White Plains), Abbey and Steven Moses (Larchmont) and Nancy Zaro (Greenwich) are the event chairs. Jaqueline and Jason Friedland (Scarsdale) and Lisa and Andrew Rodman (Scarsdale) are the event journal chairs.
