December 2017-January 2018 Fund in Focus: Rabbi Akselrad Lecture Series Fund

Rabbi Akselrad, second from left, takes part in the 1965 Civil Rights March in Selma, Alabama

Rabbi Akselrad (z”l) was a beloved leader of the Beth Am community who stood up for what he believed in: justice, human rights and ethical behavior. His leadership inspired (and continues to inspire) our members to think, to act and to take steps to make the world a better place. The Rabbi Akselrad Lecture Series honors our beloved rabbi’s memory while carrying out the legacy he created, by inviting today’s mitzvah heroes and leaders of social justice and human relations to speak as part of this lecture series.

We welcome your donation to this and other important funds that provide resources for our congregation. If you’d like to consider creating a new fund in honor or memory of a loved one, please visit betham.org/GIVE or contact Mandy Eisner in the Beth Am office. Thank you!
