This year marks the 46th year since the inception of the Glatzer Fund and the initiation of Glatzer Memorial Weekend at Temple Emunah, an annual event that honors the memories of Anne and Nahum Glatzer, distinguished and active members of Temple Emunah. In their spirit, we bring eminent Jewish scholars to teach us and study with us.
We hope you will join us for a weekend of exploration, study, and learning together.
