Leadership as a Jewish Journey

Category: Oheb Shalom Event

Location: Oheb Shalom

Come join us as we hear from Leslie Dannin Rosenthal, current president of the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest, about her Jewish journey, and how she has been inspired to lead a life of spirituality and advocacy for Judaism and Israel.

Leslie's Jewish and spiritual life began at the famous Touro Synagogue (America's oldest synagogue), in Newport, Rhode Island, where Leslie grew up. Her story evolves as she shares with us stories of the people she met around the world along her journey of philanthropy and service.

Come to learn, connect and be inspired to develop your own personal Jewish legacy. We all have the power to be the architects of our own lives and our own Jewish identity, especially as we seek to serve others. Leslie is a source of inspiration as she shares and guides us through her personal journey.

This is an opportunity not to be missed.

Dairy lunch will be served. There is no cost for this program.
