Teaneck—AMIT, Israel’s premier education network, will host a summer afternoon tea on Shabbat afternoon, August 6, at 5:00 p.m. at the home of Lois Blumenfeld and Dr. Norman Sohn, 1358 Sussex Road, Teaneck, NJ. Mrs. Ilana Gottlieb, director of Midreshet AMIT, AMIT’s post-high school gap-year program for international students, will address this year’s event.
The event is held in memory of longtime AMIT supporter Anita Scharf whose daughter Donna Hoenig continues her legacy and is active in the Teaneck AMIT chapter. The event will feature a keynote address by Mrs. Gottlieb titled “Shirat Miriam: Appreciating the Feminine Voice,” which will focus on the contributions of the feminine voice to Judaism throughout its history.
“The summer afternoon tea is held during The Nine Days as part of the time of introspection before Tisha B’Av, the day commemorating the destruction of our holy Temple,” said Senior Director of AMIT’s Tri-State Region Genene Kaye. “The event highlights the core religious and educational values of AMIT. We are creating more community events like this to bring the world of AMIT closer to our current and prospective supporters and to highlight the full spectrum of services AMIT provides our communities both here and in Israel.”
