After graduating from the University of Maryland, Nannette returned to Richmond and, with the mindset of following in her parent’s footsteps, became immediately involved in the Jewish Community. Nannette has served on the boards of Hadassah, Rudlin Torah Academy, Richmond Jewish Foundation, and was active in Federation’s Young Leadership, having received the Sam E. and Virginia V. Binswanger Young Leadership Award.
Keynote speaker, Gadeer Kamal-Mreeh, made history as the first Druze woman to become a Member of the Knesset. Kamal-Mreeh holds a degree with honors from Bar-Ilan University in Medical Imaging and Social Sciences, and a master’s degree with honors in International Relations from Haifa University, specializing in negotiations and making decisions in international relations. Gadeer was born and lived in the Druze village, Daliyat al-Carmel. She is married to Shadi and is a proud mother of two, Tom and Liam. Gadeer enjoys cooking, art, nature, and quality time with her family which is the key to her pure happiness.
