Tapestry 13, November 19,
In 2004, UJF Director of Education Ilana De Laney and board member Meryl Gordon partnered to create an evening of adult education workshops for Stamford’s Jewish community. Thirteen years later Tapestry is a beloved institution. Attendees will have the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of topics — from current affairs to text study — and the chance to schmooze over delicious desserts. Ilana and Meryl will be honored, and Ilana will teach a workshop on the key to living a meaningful life. Registration online at www.ujf.org/Tapestry2016 or by mail with the Tapestry brochure. The event is at the Stamford JCC, 1035 Newfield Avenue.
