More than 900 people filled the room at the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston’s annual Collage luncheon at the Westin Galleria. The sold-out women’s philanthropy event featured producer, social activist, and contributing editor to Vanity Fair, Monica Lewinsky, who spoke about surviving a personal struggle and combatting bullying in all forms, including the rise of antisemitism. The multigenerational mother, daughter, and daughter-in-law team of Martha Kaplan Freedman, Arin Freedman, Auna Freedman, Emily Freedman, and Ilana Freedman Hart served as event chairs, and women’s philanthropy chair Rachel Strauss also served as part of Collage leadership. Collage attendees contributed $2.4 million to the Federation’s annual campaign, which supports the Jewish community in Houston, Israel, and around the world. Pictured are (from left): Robin T.
