The 2017 Esther Vexler Award Presentation
honoring shari pulman
On June 4th, NCJW San Antonio presented Shari Pulman with the Esther Vexler Social Justice Award. The award is named for its first recipient, Esther Vexler, long-time community volunteer and social activist.
It was a beautiful evening and we were all so inspired by Shari's commitment to the Jewish and wider community of San Antonio. Many thanks to our guests for their generous support. All proceeds from this event will be used to maintain and expand NCJW's programs.
And last, but certainly not least, thanks a million to our newest lifetime member Deborah Miller for her great photos of the evening!
