7th Annual Celebration


Jewish Learning Venture hosted its 7th Annual Celebration on April 30 at the Moore College of Art and Design. The event honored former President David Smith, who guided the merger of Jewish Outreach Partnership and Auerbach Central Agency for Jewish Education that resulted in the birth of Jewish Learning Venture.
Despite the unexpected chaos of holding our event on the same weekend as both the Penn Relays and the NFL Draft (!), it was a wonderful opportunity for members of our leadership and our generous donors to enjoy some innovative art; a delicious brunch (including specialties from the Zahav cookbook – our One Book, One Jewish Community book of the year; the jazz stylings of Ralph Wellington and his trio; and each other’s company!
It was a truly splendid morning to celebrate our agency’s programs, initiatives and inspired leadership.
