NEW YORK, NY:  At its annual spring gala the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services (The Jewish Board), New York City’s largest human services nonprofit, honored trustees Mark H. Rachesky, MD and Jodi J. Schwartz, and longtime corporate partner Beacon Health Options. The event, took  place on Wednesday, May 10, at The Plaza Hotel, It is also raised roughly $1.5 million for the programs of The Jewish Board, which serves more than 43,000 New Yorkers of all faiths, ethnicities and socioeconomic backgrounds each year

Said David Rivel, Chief Executive Officer: “Our gratitude to our honorees is boundless. The support and leadership of trustees like Mark Rachesky and Jodi Schwartz, and the work of companies like Beacon Health Options, make it possible for us to offer support and care to more than 40,000 New Yorkers.”

Board president Alice Tisch presented the honorees with their awards.

Mark H. Rachesky, MD, receivethe Schiff Community Impact Award. Dr. Rachesky is Chairman of the Board of Directors of Lionsgate Entertainment, a leading film and TV content creator; president of the New York-based investment firm MHR Fund Management LLC; and a board member of Loral Space & Communications, Inc., and Telesat Canada, the fourth largest satellite company in the world. He has been a Jewish Board trustee for 15 years and is a dedicated member of the New York Jewish community who also serves on the Board of Directors of the Mount Sinai Children’s Center Foundation and Columbia University Medical Center.

Jodi Schwartz received the Madeleine Borg Lifetime Service Award. Ms. Schwartz, a partner specializing in tax law at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, has been a Jewish Board trustee for 25 years. She has served on a variety of committees and was instrumental in the organization’s absorption of $75 million in programs from fellow social services agency FEGS, which closed its doors in 2015. Ms. Schwartz is also a board member of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee and the Jewish Community Project of Lower Manhattan, and serves on the Board of Overseers of the University of Pennsylvania Law School.

The Madeleine Borg Lifetime Service Award is named for Madeleine Borg (1878-1956), a lifelong advocate for children and for greater access to mental health services. From 1942 to 1952 Ms. Borg served as President of what became The Jewish Board. She was an early organizer and leader of the Jewish Federation and the founder of America’s Big Sister movement.

The Schiff Community Impact Award is named for philanthropist Jacob Schiff (1847-1920) and his family in honor of their work with United Hebrew Charities, an organization which later became part of The Jewish Board. The award also honors the Schiffs for their generosity in donating land in Westchester County for a school for delinquent boys, something unheard of at the time. Today the property is home to The Jewish Board’s residential treatment center for young people who are dealing with emotional and psychiatric challenges.

Managed-care company Beacon Health Options is being honored for its longtime partnership with The Jewish Board. The company facilitates The Jewish Board’s delivery of behavioral health services to thousands of Jewish Board clients and played a critical role in the organization’s absorption of FEGS programs in 2015. Jorge Petit, Beacon’s regional vice president for the New York region, will accept the award on behalf of his company.
