WHAT IS BOLD CHOICES?
Each year, Women Together is proud to honor Jewish women in Orlando who are truly making a difference in their community. In 2021, our word of the year was BRAVE, and we honored women who exemplified courage and resilience.
This year, our word is BOLD—but what exactly does it mean to be bold?
To us, BOLD means taking risks, living with courage, daring to make a change.
Our BOLD nominees are women who are making a difference—in their own lives, in the lives of their families and friends, in Jewish Orlando and beyond. Their stories are filled with perseverance, selflessness, and soaring against the odds. These bold women are not afraid to stand up for their beliefs and values, even in the most difficult of situations. Kol hakavod!
Nominations for Bold Choices closed on Friday, March 3rd.
