Tidewater Jewish Foundation will host the 2022 Simon Family Legacy Celebration, an event honoring donors, agencies, and organizations serving the current and future Tidewater Jewish community. TJF’s first in-person event in three years, the celebration aims to connect and highlight community accomplishments.

“For the past two years, our community, just like most of the world, has stayed home, practiced social distancing, and adhered to health guidelines,” says Naomi Limor Sedek, president and CEO of Tidewater Jewish Foundation. “As we ease out of the pandemic, now is the perfect time to finally get together and highlight the incredible accomplishments our community has achieved over the last few years.”

In addition to connecting in-person and highlighting the impact of the community, TJF will unveil its revamped Book of Life site, which has been in the works since the start of the year. The event will also be the first time that many community members will get to meet Limor Sedek in-person.

“I am so excited for TJF to gather together for the first time in two years,” says Sedek. “The community gets to celebrate our past accomplishments and I can share my vision for the Foundation’s future.”

The 2022 Simon Family Legacy Celebration will take place at the Marty Einhorn Pavilion on the Sandler Family Campus. RSVP is required to attend. For more information, contact Kim King at or 757-965-6103.
