The Alan J. Wyner Annual Men's Event is the yearly opportunity for the men of our community to come together to spend quality time with a shared mission and purpose, to help our local Jewish community, Israel, and the Jewish People worldwide. This event is named in the memory of Past President, Dr. Alan J. Wyner z”l.
ALAN J. WYNER z"l
Inscribed in the Jewish Federation’s Book of Life in January, 2015, Immediate Past President Alan J. Wyner’s legacy of support, leadership, and education is ensured. In renaming the annual Men’s Event in his honor, the Federation recognizes and acknowledges the importance of Alan’s vision of a robust and engaging Men’s Division and annual event, to compliment and mirror the successful growth and impact of the Women’s Division, and the annual Women’s Philanthropy Luncheon.
Together with his wife, Louise, the Wyners have passionately embraced a wide variety of Jewish issues and causes in Santa Barbara. The influence of their generosity, leadership, values, and support for Israel will be felt for many years. Ever the consummate teacher, Alan continues to teach us even now – to care, to be involved, and to give passionately.
