Lion of Judah Lunch & Learn

The Lion of Judah Lunch and Learn series is for women who are Lions of Judah (women making a personal commitment to the Annual 2016 Campaign of $5,000 or more) or Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE) participants (women who have established an endowment fund of $100,000 or more in their name), or whose household commitment to the Jewish Federation's 2016 Annual Campaign is $10,000 or more. The Lion Lunch and Learn is an annual series of three events throughout the year, provided as a "perk" for women who are Lions of Judah. Each year, the Lunch series focuses on a new theme.  Generally, the events are hosted at private homes, and include lunch, a speaker, and socializing.

Lion Lunch and Learn

Tuesday, October 16, 2018
Noon-1:30pm
Location: Private Home
(Address provided upon RSVP)
Lunch will be served. Dietary laws observed. 
Free to attend. 

Join us for the first of three opportunities to lunch with a fabulous group of women. Take part in a thought-provoking discussion on Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Presented by Rabbi Dr. Danny Schiff, Foundation Scholar.

Arabs and Jews:  What does it mean to be neighbors in a Jewish state? Even when peace finally comes to the Middle East, Jews will have millions of Arab neighbors living with them within Israel itself.  And this raises the question: what is our responsibility to our non-Jewish neighbors within a Jewish state? This session will explore how Judaism might respond.

For more information or to RSVP, contact Rachel Lipkin at rlipkin@jfedpgh.org or 412-992-5227.

Invited are women who are Lions of Judah or LOJE participants.
