Leadership, Learning, and Love Series 2020/5780

Because we were unable to gather in person for this year’s spring event, we transformed our evening of beautiful music and uplifting ideas into three digital offerings in April, including our April 29 online event honoring Rabbi Rim Meirowitz, beloved and esteemed mentor and teacher. We will wait until we can gather again in person to honor our beloved student, Jill Segal z”l, with the Esther Award.
