You are invited to join us at the
2020 Annual Day of Learning & Celebration

Please join us at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 19 to come together to honor Pam Sommers and Fred Pinkney, Ken Staubs, Betty and Peter Silverglate, Rayna Aylward, Toni Popkin, Mark Loewenstein, Dan Bravmann and Ann Wittik Bravmann, and Gary and Melody Magnus, who have given their talent and time to help your community thrive. We will start our celebration with a short study session, continue with our program of honor and a short musical interlude, and end with a virtual toast (have your favorite drink ready!)


Since we are unable to thank our honorees in person, you can still send your thanks and support virtually. To ensure honorees are properly recognized, please consider purchasing a message for the Tribute Journal, which will be produced and distributed digitally on April 19, and will also be posted on Reconstructing Judaism’s website. Each honoree will receive their own personal printed copy of the journal to have as a keepsake.


We have waived registration fees for the Annual Celebration and hope that you will direct your contribution to help us create a robust Tribute Journal that celebrates the hard work of those being honored. You can purchase your message now through Friday, March 27.


We know how sweet it is to come together, and look forward to celebrating together virtually in this time of physical distancing. In this time, may those directly impacted experience refuah shleimah: a healing of body, mind and spirit. And may we all do our part to save lives. In Judaism, the obligation of pikuach nefesh (saving a life) supersedes all.


We look forward to hearing from you soon! In order to participate in the Annual Celebration, you still need to register. Please click here both to purchase your tribute and to sign up for the Virtual Annual Celebration.

If you have any additional questions, please contact Jackie Land at JLand@ReconstructingJudaism.org.
