The Jewish Federation of the Lehigh Valley’s Young Adult Division is kicking off the year in a big way!
On Wednesday, Sept. 16, YAD members are invited to join together at 1 p.m. for a lunch hour meet and greet with new community shaliach Gavriel Siman-Tov. The gathering will be a chance to interact with each other and learn a little bit about Siman-Tov’s journey from Israel to the Lehigh Valley.
Then from 1:30 to 2:15 p.m., YAD will join with Jewish Federations across North America for a big “Communal Kvell” featuring an all-star celebrity family.
YAD welcomes all community members to join for this portion of the event.
During this program, in addition to listening to stories from our special guests, you’ll hear more about where your dollar has gone and why you are such a critical piece of our shared Jewish community.
And it wouldn’t be a party without music — there will be special live performances.
