The Menís Club is providing fun and honoring the Latin American Masorti Community with a Jewish-Latin Celebration and fundraiser. Some members of Olam Tikvah are from that community, and in addition to benefitting Olam Tikvah programs and the Capital Fund, part of the proceeds will go to El Seminario Rabinico Latinoamericano Marshall Meyer in Buenos Aires in honor of its 50th Anniversary last year. El Seminario educates Conservative Rabbis and Hazzanim to serve communities across Latin America from Mexico to Argentina.
We will be holding a Silent Auction for the evening with several valuable items, including a beautiful Kashmiri Tabriz carpet, a hand-signed print by Senator Dianne Feinstein, an estate planning package, Redskins tickets, movie tickets, certificates for local merchants and more. Details here.
Dress for the evening is Festive Casual (no ties). Reservations are now closed and we cannot accept walk-ins.
