Hispanic Federation Talks Latino-Jewish Relations PDF Print E-mail

New York City Councilmember Mark Levine knows a great deal about Latino-Jewish relations.  He represents Northern Manhattan which includes large Jewish and Latino communities, is fluent in Spanish, and is married to a Puerto Rican woman.  In short, he was the perfect person to host an event bringing together Latino and Jewish leaders in the Committee Room of the New York City Council last week.  Hispanic Federation President José Calderón participated in the event, as did former Bronx Borough President Fernando Ferrer, NYC Council Speaker Melissa Mark Viverito and Councilmember Antonio Reynoso. 

Hispanic Federation Will Honor Rita Moreno at Annual Gala PDF Print E-mail

The Hispanic Federation celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. That’s something to be proud of! To mark this achievement, this year’s gala, scheduled for April 8th at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, promises to be our most successful event ever. Our list of honorees includes the founding member agencies of the Hispanic Federation, long-time supporter Pfizer, philanthropist Ricardo Salinas, former HF President Lillian Rodriguez López, and Emmy, Grammy, Tony and Oscar-winning legend, Rita Moreno. As always, the funds raised through this event are the backbone of HF’s grant-making program.  Last year, HF had a record-setting year of grant-making, awarding more than $2 million in grants to support the core needs of 80 member agencies.  As we mark our silver anniversary we know we can exceed last year’s achievement.  But in order to do that, we need your help.  Mark your calendars and join us to celebrate 25 years of service to the Latino community.  For more information on our silver anniversary gala, please contact Frankie Miranda or download you pledge form at

The Hispanic Federation helped bring 60 preschool children and their parents to enjoy an unforgettable trip through Macy’s famous Santaland, where they were greeted by Santa elves, provided a healthy breakfast, participated in Christmas Carol sing-alongs, and received special gifts from Santa himself.

November Means Thanksgiving…and Diabetes Awareness Month PDF Print E-mail

Every November we celebrate Thanksgiving. However, November is also Diabetes Awareness Month. With only a week to go before everybody’s favorite food-centered holiday, HF is reflecting on the fact that it would be almost impossible to find a family untouched by diabetes. During your Thanksgiving celebrations (and meals), we encourage you to not only give thanks, but to also think about your health and your own risk for diabetes.
