Four hundred people came out on Saturday, December 5 to Beth El Synagogue Center New Rochelle to learn and socialize at the biennial Night of Jewish Learning and Celebration, presented by the Westchester Jewish Council and The Westchester Board of Rabbis with financial support from UJA-Federation of New York/Westchester.

The evening featured 32 workshops on a wide variety of topics, all taught by Westchester rabbis. (Click here for full listing of classes.) Adult learners who participated in the evening were able to attend two workshops each. Rabbi Fredda Cohen chaired the event. The evening concluded with an expansive dessert reception by Classic Marc Aaron Caterers with musical entertainment by Rabbi Andrew Bossov. “This event truly brings together the entire Westchester Jewish community. The rabbis who teach, as well as the adult learners who attend, represent all denominations of Judaism. It is a wonderful opportunity for the community to learn from clergy from around the county whom they may not know,” said Paul Warhit, President, Westchester Jewish Council. “We are so thankful to all the rabbis who give of their time and talent to make this night possible.”
