Aviva Kempner’s Rosenwald is the incredible story of Julius Rosenwald. This man never finished high school but rose to become president of the Sears. Influenced by the writings of the educator Booker T. Washington, this Jewish philanthropist joined forces with African American communities in the South during the Jim Crow era to build over 5,300 schools during the early part of the 20th century.

Inspired by the Jewish ideals of tzedakah (charity), tikkun olam (repairing the world), and a deep concern over racial inequality in America, Julius Rosenwald used his wealth to become one of America’s most effective philanthropists, and gave away more than $62 million in his lifetime.

This L.I.F.E. Lecture will only consist of the film screening of Rosenwald.
