Beth Am is honored to dedicate the Lori Levinson Luft Adult Education Fund, founded by Lori’s brother and sister-in-law, Allen and Leslie Levinson of New Jersey. Allen commented, “We wanted to do something to honor Lori, and Beth Am and lifelong learning were very dear to her heart.” The fund supports Beth Am’s wide array of adult programs including the Asilomar retreat, lectures and classes — and helps subsidize participation for people who need it. Lori, who died in January 2016, was, along with her husband, Hal, a longtime active member of Beth Am. She was both student and teacher, as well as a mentor to staff and a leader of various projects in support of our community. The Lori Levinson Luft Adult Education Fund will honor Lori’s dedication by funding programs that she loved.
