The Fred and Elsie Deutsch Scholar-in-Residence program allows various educators to bring their knowledge and insight on topics such as Judaism, Israel, Social Justice, and more, to our Congregation.
The Scholar-in-Residence Weekends are made possible through the Fred and Elise Deutsch Endowment Fund. The Congregation would also like to thank Roberta and Jim Deutsch, Judy and Larry Deutsch and their families for their continuous generous support for the Scholar-in-Residence Weekend.
