Although we’ve made some changes to our annual installation – first and foremost moving it online – one thing that hasn’t changed is that it is a wonderful time to celebrate our outgoing board members and vote for and welcome our incoming Board of Directors. Click here for the proposed FY2021 NCJW CNS Board Slate.
We also have a special treat, after the board installation, NCJW is proud to present singer, actress, songwriter, and jewish musical artist Lisa Fishman who was most recently seen in New York as Bobe Tsaytl (aka: “Grandma Tzeitl) in the hit Off-Broadway show, “Fiddler on the Roof – in Yiddish,” directed by the legendary actor/director, Joel Grey. Lisa will talk to us about the renewed interest in Yiddish and her experience. She will also entertain us with a song or two. This is a DON’T MISS program!
There is no charge to attend the virtual installation but we ask that you RSVP in order to receive the Zoom login information.
