"Thank you for Anthony Cohen's wonderful presentation today...I loved every minute of the hour and a half. "

"Yesterday's speakers at the annual meeting were well, well worth hearing."

"This past year, we were treated to a couple of the wonderful salons that you ran.  In particular, we were really wowed by Anthony Cohen and his fascinating story."

"It is not often that I hear a speaker where I walk away thinking this...I feel so fortunate that I got to hear Ambassador Schifter.  That was truly a treat and an exceptional afternoon."

"Wonderful event. Very well orchestrated. Very informative."

"You did an excellent job in arranging the program. Asking Robin Helzner to talk and sing was an inspired choice. I was glad I came, even if by Metrorail and bus from downtown DC. I give you credit for organizing the program and for starting promptly."

"The program made for an evening we’ll never forget. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to produce another JHSGW signature partnership achievement." 

"Many thanks for organizing such a wonderful and educational afternoon [at the Jewish Museum of Maryland]...I know there was a lot of preparation involved, but everything ran so smoothly...I enjoyed your slide show presentation and Marvin [Pinkert] was a terrific speaker."

"I was very impressed with the tremendous amount of research done on who Al Welsh, his family, his contributions to aviation and his place in the Jewish community. Laura's presentation [at the Centennial program] and the exhibit really made him come alive."

"A delightful, stimulating evening."

"Monday's screening [of The Ritchie Boys] and panel discussion was a highly successful event. Congratulations on your vision and planning and execution."

"I thought it was an excellent program...Rabbi Resnicoff was perfect speaker for the event..."

"All of the elements were very high quality [in the Holocaust Remembrance program] --the talent of the two featured players, the subject matter, the length was just right, and the reception following was lovely."

"The entire program was meaningful and memorable. I liked [Ambassador Richard] Schifter's talk; it was moving."

"Robyn [Helzner]'s presentation was so powerful! I sang every song...had tears in my eyes, as did others, I noticed...Bravo for a very meaningful program."

"Concert was superb...and remarks were very illuminating."

"I was very impressed with the presentation! Congratulations on a job well done! I had a few students come who also enjoyed it greatly."
