Three Noted 'Women of Valor' to be Honored at Los Angeles Jewish Home Gala Dinner

Rain Pryor, Award-Winning Actress, Singer and Author to Serve as Emcee at

September 7 Beverly Hilton Event

RESEDA, Calif., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Civic, business and community leaders will join together at the Los Angeles Jewish Home's 8th Annual Celebration of Life: Reflections 2008 gala on September 7 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The event will honor Jacqui Fogel, Dorothy Goren, and Reggie Scheer with the 2008 Women of Valor Award for their longtime support of the Home. Rain Pryor, award-winning actress, singer and author and daughter of the late legendary comic Richard Pryor, will serve as the evening's emcee.

All three women .- who also have been active with many other local organizations in the Jewish and general communities .- will be recognized for their extraordinary leadership contributions. "A Woman of Valor" is a Sabbath hymn that is traditionally said on Friday evenings by a husband, thanking his wife for all she has done for him and their family during the past week. It describes qualities of energy, righteousness and capability that such a woman displays.

In announcing this year's honorees, Jewish Home CEO/President Molly Forrest said that their "modern embodiment of this ancient hymn has enhanced and enriched so many of the Home's important programs both on our campuses and throughout the community."

Past honorees at the Home's Reflections dinner have included Fox Pictures Co-Chairman Tom Rothman; Rob Reiner; Paul Goldenberg (of Paul's TV); Ed Goren; philanthropists Joyce Eisenberg-Keefer, Sherman Grancell, Adele Morse Platt and Earl Geinetz; and Marilyn and Monty Hall among others. In headlining the evening, Pryor joins a long list of renowned entertainers who have performed at the Reflections gala including Harry Connick, Jr.; Rita Rudner; Ray Romano; Howie Mandel; and Jerry Springer.

Pryor is a dynamic speaker, multiple sclerosis spokesperson, accomplished actress, sought-after author, jazz vocalist, producer and star of her NAACP Image Award-winning one-woman show, "Fried Chicken & Latkes." During a nearly 20-year span in the entertainment industry, Rain has played a feature role on the Showtime original series "Rude Awakening" and guest starred on shows such as "The Division" and "Chicago Hope." She has appeared in numerous independent features as well as Universal Pictures release of "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" and the groundbreaking Melvin Van Peebles film "Panther." Rain has also been a guest on the "Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson and Jay Leno, "The Craig Ferguson Show," "Montel Williams," "Air America" and "Tavis Smiley."

The September 7 event will begin with a reception at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner and program at 6:30 p.m. The event is co-chaired by Jerrie Heslov and Michelle Rubin. Honorary chair is Joyce Eisenberg-Keefer. Tickets are priced at $350 per person; tables and sponsorship packages are available. Please contact Esther Cohen at 818-774-3342 or for reservations and information.
