More than 460 women (and quite a few men) converged on Congregation Ohev Shalom on Feb. 9 for Choices, the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando's annual women's philanthropy fundraiser. This year, Federation honored eight Women of Choice, representing Greater Orlando's eight Jewish agencies. A full report and more photos from Choices 2017 will appear in the Feb. 24 edition of the Heritage. Watch a video tribute to the Women of Choice at www.jfgo.org/choices.
