Wednesday, March 30 – 6:30 pm MT, on Zoom: Justin Ferate lecture on Jacob Schiff
Presented by the New Mexico Jewish Historical Society: Justin Ferate returns for another outstanding lecture, this time on the legendary Jacob Schiff. Schiff was the most prominent German-Jewish businessman and financier from 1880-1920. A titan in the world of international finance, he was a leader in the Jewish community and an outspoken voice against antisemitism. Schiff was known for his “hands on” philanthropy across a wide range of interests.

The Jewish Federation of New Mexico is thrilled to present a special evening with Pulitzer Prizewinning journalist and author Thomas Friedman. This will be a Zoom presentation for anyone who wishes to attend from afar. Covid permitting, his presentation will be preceded by an in-person Homecoming Dinner at the Jewish Federation in Albuquerque, followed by a shared viewing of the presentation on the big screen. This rare opportunity to hear Tom Friedman speak, and to ask questions following the presentation, is not to be missed!

Saturday, April 23 – 1pm MT: Passover Seder at Temple Aaron of Trinidad
Join us in person for an intimate close to Pesach. Led by Rabbi Rob Lennick, Temple Aaron’s Seder will be held the last afternoon of Passover, Saturday, April 23. We especially want to welcome members of the local community who may be part of other faith communities.
We look forward to welcoming both familiar faces as well as new friends. This will be a contemporary service that includes traditional elements of the Seder while also building bridges across cultures and traditions.
The Seder will include a full meal provided by Alys Romer, who has provided incredible meals for Temple Aaron events for many years.
The Seder is free for Individual, Family, and Lifetime members of Temple Aaron. Seats are $36 for nonmembers. The Seder is one of the highlight events at Temple Aaron each year and spots fill quickly, so please register if you would like to attend.
