The Forward Goes High Society
We wouldn’t normally toot our own horn, but this is just too good to pass up. Last night, the Forward held a party at the Rubin Museum of Art both as a kick-off to a fundraising campaign and a lead-up to a March 8 gala at the Mandarin Oriental. Guests included John Ruskay, CEO of the UJA-Federation of New York; activist and writer Letty Cottin Pogrebin, who recently served as a guest editor of the Forward’s Op-Ed page; and poet Alicia Ostriker, who concluded the night reading several poems, including “Becky and Bernie in Far Rockaway.” Not long after, our friends over at the website New York Social Diary published this glowing review of the events (scroll down to the bottom to see). What can we say, we’re flattered!
