  • Global Day of Jewish Learning

Federation hosts several holiday and educational events throughout the year which are open to all.

 

Global Day of Jewish Learning - This global project by the Aleph Society encourages Jewish communities around the world to learn about a aspects of Judaism which relate to a pre-determined theme. Locally, we bring scholars and guest lecturers from our own community to lead interesting workshops, discussions, or lectures relating to the year's theme. We always have at least one program for children and often have workshops relating to the arts, movement and meditation, or anything unique that can add to the day. Learn more about Global Day here.

 

One Book Jewish Lexington - The whole community is invited to read the same book with a Jewish theme and come together for a book discussion group.

 

Winter Dinner - A community dinner at a local restaurant, usually during Hanukkah and always in December.

 

Yom Ha'atzmaut - Our community has celebrated Israel's day of Independence many ways in the past, with community festivals, concerts, film screenings, and special guests. 

 

Yom HaShoah - In recent years, this community-wide Holocaust Remembrance Day commemoration has been very well attended. We light memorial candles, have choir music, award local school children for essays written about the Holocaust, and also have roundtable discussions either about a film or about specific Holocaust related topics. 

To learn more about these programs, or to join a planning committee, please contact Judy Wortman at jfb@jewishlexington.org or (859) 268-0672.
