2011 Ben-Gurion Society Event to be Held in January

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation 2011 Ben-Gurion Society Event will take place at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, January 13, 2011 in Miami Beach.

The Ben-Gurion Society is a national donor recognition program for individuals ages 25 to 45. In Miami, those who make a gift of $1,000 or more to the Annual Greater Miami Jewish Federation/UJA Campaign are recognized. This annual event is being co-chaired by Lisa Kudish and Mark Kravitz, and is being hosted by Naomi Wilzig, President and Founder of the World Erotic Art Museum (WEAM) and a longtime supporter of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and a number of other Jewish causes. The event will be held at the World Erotic Art Museum, 1205 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach.

The program will feature a keynote address on “Sex, Love and Relationships” from Rabbi Yonah Bookstein, whose work with JConnect and Jewlicious Festivals has been about making Judaism hip, exciting and approachable for young people. A question-and-answer session will follow.
