Brandeis at Westlake Presents: High School Reunion

A celebration of yesterdays, todays and tomorrows! Come dressed as your past self during high school, bring some memorabilia, celebrate the present, and toast to the future! Open to all Westlake residents at the Westlake Ballroom, on Saturday, August 12th, from 7:00- 11:00 pm! It won’t be the same without you!

HAHAHAHA! Save The Date! We’re not kidding!

There’s an ancient saying: Laughter is the best medicine. Well, it’s true; laughter is therapeutic.

When you laugh, your brain chemistry changes in a way that effects virtually every system of the body in a healthful manner. Research shows that regular laughter relieves stress, anxiety, and depression, boosts the immune system, improves respiration, adjusts blood pressure, reduces pain, burns calories, relaxes muscles and more.

So join us for a special event “The Healing Power of Laughter” led by Michele Granberg, MA, Certified Laughter Leader, who will get and keep you laughing, at the Westlake Ballroom, on Tuesday, July 18th. The event starts at 7:00 pm. For more information, please contact Judy Carton or Joan Davis. We hope to see you there!

Friedberg Announced as BNC National President

Madalyn Friedberg, from the Central Westchester chapter, who has served as national vice president of fundraising for the past year, succeeded Barbara Sander as the Brandeis National Committee’s national president on July 1. Madalyn joined the BNC in 1973, and will serve as a leader for the organization and its 41 chapters.

Friedberg joined the BNC at the urging of a friend. A mother of three young children, she was seeking a group of like-minded lifelong learners. She knew about Brandeis University because her father, David Felix, had been friendly with Lawrence Wien, the founder of Brandeis’ Wien International Scholarship Program.

“I liked the BNC women right away,” Friedberg says. “I remember the women didn’t ask what my husband did for a living or how many children I had. They cared about who I was.”

As treasurer of the Central Westchester chapter for many years, she knows the financial advantages of establishing a charitable gift annuity for those interested in supporting the university. In 2015, Friedberg and her husband, Stephen, established a generous charitable gift annuity, planning to create another one this year.

“The premise on which the university was founded is very important to us,” Madalyn says. “Brandeis opened a whole world to people who needed an education. We want to do what we can to support Brandeis.”

Meet Sophia Glickman

Brandeis students like Sophia Glickman ’16 give us hope. A BNC Scholar from Valhalla, New York, Sophia is a double major in biology and environmental studies. She worked as an undergraduate researcher in K.C. Hayes’ laboratory, researching the effects of various diets on the development of diabetes in rats. She chose Brandeis because of its friendly atmosphere and the opportunities it offers students to find their own path. Read her thank you letter (http://bit.ly/1pH9GB9) where she thanks BNC members, like YOU, for making her Brandeis experience possible. Thank you for supporting the BNC Scholarship Campaign. https://giving.brandeis.edu/bncscholarship. Read more stories like Sophia’s here.
