The Federation is proud to announce a new program, “Mensch of the Month,” designed to honor members of our community who go above and beyond to make a difference. A mensch is described as someone to admire and emulate, a person with integrity and honor. With that, we are delighted to introduce you to Anne Stein, the first Mensch of the Month…
Anne Stein is a hidden gem in our community. She quietly uplifts our Holocaust survivors, inspires our youth and supports our entire Jewish community. Not only does Anne sponsor individual students during the March of the Living Mission, but she also graciously opens her home to host elegant tea parties, meetings, and dinners for the students and their families before and after the mission. She regularly goes above and beyond for the students and families in our community.
However, Anne doesn’t stop there; she also serves on the Board of Directors of our Federation and is the First Lady of Chabad of Sarasota. She is very passionate about our beloved State of Israel, Holocaust awareness and education, traveling and of course…Hula dancing. Anne has been happily married to Dr. Barry Stein for over 30 years and together, they are the proud parents of Alexander and Samantha Stein.
We are truly fortunate to have Anne Stein as part of our Sarasota-Manatee community and we thank her for being an absolute mensch!
