The Jewish Federation of Greater Houston celebrated the 25th anniversary Collage, its signature women’s philanthropy luncheon, with a sold-out crowd of more than 850 at the Royal Sonesta. Mother and daughters-in-law team Martha Weisberg Barvin, Kaori Barvin and Olivia Barvin chaired the event. Featured speaker was Ophira Eisenberg, comedian and host of NPR’s nationally syndicated comedy trivia show Ask Me Another. This year, Collage attendees have raised more than $1.2 million for the Federation, which supports Jewish people in Houston, Israel and around the world.
