FAIRFIELD — More than 200 guests, including U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal, were on hand on Sunday, Nov. 6 as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) presented the organization’s Distinguished Community Leadership Award to four Upper Fairfield County community leaders. Alan and Betty Feldman, and Brett Aronow and Keith Stein were honored at a reception held at the Fairfield Theater Company in Fairfield. The ADL also remembered Holocaust survivor Anita Schorr z”l, creating in her memory a “Step In and Be a Hero” fund to help support ADL’s education programs for teachers and students.
“It was an evening that really displayed the breadth of the work that this organization does both here in Fairfield County and around the country,” said ADL Connecticut Director Steve Ginsburg. “From our partnership with law enforcement to remembering our dear friend Anita Schorr, it was an emotional evening that will not soon be forgotten. We couldn’t have invented better honorees than the Feldmans and Keith and Brett. They are extraordinary and dedicated community leaders who embody the ADL virtues of acceptance and civic participation.”
