L.I.F.E. Lecture Series

L.I.F.E. Lecture Series

The L.I.F.E. Lecture Series (Learning Is for Everyone!) provides a variety of learning experiences to our congregants and the broader Jewish community. Our series brings high quality speakers from the Washington community and beyond to present programs of interest on a range of topics and issues that are current to our world. All L.I.F.E. Lectures are free of charge.


L.I.F.E. Lectures will be sign-interpreted for the hearing impaired, if requested at least three business days prior to the program. Special thanks to the Meisel Family Endowment for Special Needs and the Dr. Mitchell and Thelma Goldfarb Rubinow Endowment for Special Needs for making this service possible. The L.I.F.E. Lecture Series is sustained by member contributions, along with generous support from the Israel Bimblich Memorial Lecture Fund, the Bess and Irving Kamins Lecture Fund, the Lieblein Memorial Lecture Fund, the Morris and Ida Park Memorial Lecture Fund, and the Louis Wener, M.D., Memorial Lecture Fund.
