Tikkun Olam is a Hebrew phrase and key Jewish belief, which references the shared responsibility to heal, repair and transform the world. The goal of the Presidents Dinner is to bring in world-renowned speakers for a one-of-a-kind experience that will inspire our community with a global message of Tikkun Olam on an intimate level. We accomplish this by making the event accessible to all community members, while at the same time providing Corporate Sponsors the opportunity to gain awareness for their exposure.
Presidents Dinner is held annually between May and June.
Keynote Speaker Dr. Ruth Westheimer
She is the author of 44 books, the latest of which are Stay or Go and Roller Coaster Grandma and the executive producer of five documentaries.
