On Wednesday, January 18, Ida Crown Jewish Academy welcomed our Society of Patrons members to a private dinner and conversation with Arna Poupko Fisher, Ph.D., internationally noted lecturer, educator and author, currently teaching at the University of Cincinnati, who spoke on “The World, the Jews, Our Values.” The elegant evening program took place at our new building and was chaired by Sue and David Strulowitz and Daniela and Jacques Gliksberg.

Members of the Society of Patrons serve as the foundation of our fundraising efforts.
