Steven Roberts HWA Exclusive Speaker

"I wanted to let you know just how great Steve Roberts was and what a terrific turnout we had because people wanted to see him. He was fantastic!!! People did not want the program to end, they just seemed to want to stay to listen to him and ask their questions. He was great about the questions and was so sensitive to the people who were asking the questions. We literally had to end the program because we needed to get him to the airport on time. At the fundraising patron's luncheon prior to the program, he spoke about his book and his family and his life growing up in New Jersey and compared it to the Jewish community of Cleveland. He had obviously studied his materials that were sent to him about NCJW and mentioned our projects when appropriate. He was so unbiased in his lecture to the large group that most people could not figure out who he was supporting. He presented the facts in a very interesting and when appropriate, entertaining manner. We could not have asked for a better speaker for our opening major meeting. Approximately, 350 people made reservations to attend the program and then we had many walk ins. We were extremely pleased and have only heard positive feedback. He was truly a pleasure to listen to, especially in a presidential election year."

- Janice Bilchik, Co-Vice President Program, NCJW- Cleveland Section
