The Federation of Jewish Women's Organizations of Maryland Honors Deverah Routman

The Federation of Jewish Women's Organizations of Maryland 102nd Annual Convention was held on May 24, 2018 at Baltimore Hebrew Congregation.  This year's theme was "Passion to Action: Building for Tomorrow. " The proud honoree from our Levindale Auxiliary was Deverah Routman.

Deverah Routman currently serves on the Auxiliary's board and is our Development Advisor. We have benefited greatly from her expertise in fundraising and spreading the word about our beloved Auxiliary.

We were thrilled and excited to celebrate this well-deserved honor with Deverah at this year's convention.  Please save the date and join us for The Federation of Jewish Women's Organizations of Maryland 103rd Annual Convention on May 23, 2019 at Temple Oheb Shalom.

Event chairs Esther Jacobson and Randy Melnick get huge kudos for coordinating an elegant, fun-filled evening, Sunday, October 29, 2017. “All That Jazz ... and more!” honored the Auxiliary’s own
Eve Vogelstein, in an evening that included the food and fun of New Orleans with wonderful music provided by Freddie Stevens Entertainment...

Eve Vogelstein has had a special place in her heart for the Levindale Auxiliary for the past 20+ years. She served as president in 2002 and remains active and involved with every aspect of our mission now. Attendees participated in a Silent Auction, dinner, and lots of fun.

The monies raised from the evening have been used to provide exciting, new, state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment to enhance the resident’s experience in the Town Center and Museum areas. The Auxiliary is thrilled to be able to continue our commitment to improve the lives of Levindale‘s residents...

Eve’s honor is well deserved and she is no stranger to organizations in Pikesville and Baltimore’s Jewish community. She was the past president of The Federation of Jewish Women’s Organizations of Maryland and recently spearheaded their centennial celebration. She is also the vice president of the Pikesville Garden Club and has most recently begun a new venture as president of the Great Talk, Inc., an innovative non-profit talk series throughout Maryland.

Eve’s passion for flowers and nature has been a driving force in creating the Levindale Auxiliary Sensory Garden and Donor Wall as well. Professionally, she has been the owner of the Garden of Eve, a plant and flower business, for 40 years and now devotes all her energy to her organizations and her family.

Having an expertise in technology, Eve has taught and helped many organizations to stay connected and handles the Auxiliary website among others.

Her greatest accomplishment is her family. Just ask her! Her late husband Barry shared her passion and was her biggest supporter. She has four wonderful children and three incredible grandsons. As a born New Yorker, Eve has called Baltimore home for 29 years. Eve is proud to be an Auxiliary member where she has made her closest lifelong friends.

Thanks to Esther and Randy for all their hard work and their fabulous committee, too: Rochelle Bohrer, Marcia Bornfriend, Maxine Cohen, Linda Elman, Gail Friedler, Emily Gordon, Rina Janet, Iris Miller, Betsy Narrow, Elissa Ness, Linda Roedel, and Deverah Routman.

A special ‘thank you’ to Eve’s family members—Danny Vogelstein, Claire Loeb, Hana Rose Kondratyuk, and Marlee Vogelstein—for organizing a fabulous audio visual presentation of Eve‘s footprint on Levindale over the years. It was a wonderful and fun trip down Memory Lane!

Even more thanks go to those businesses that donated to our fundraising efforts and silent auction. And, appreciation to those attendees who purchased over 80 items in our silent auction.  We are happy to report that the Fundraiser was a great success and we were able to provide Levindale with a state of the art Audio/Visual System that all the residents can enjoy and benefit from.
