Come join us for the LHI Education Committee's Sunday Salon Series.  A speaker will present on an interesting topic in a relaxed, salon-style setting.  LHI member Beverly Hayden has graciously agreed to host our intimate gatherings.  The salon will run from 2pm to 4pm.

We are holding our first Sunday Salon on January 26, 2020. 

We are delighted that at this Sunday Salon, LHI member Bobbi Cohen will present on The Jews of ShanghaiMany people are unaware that, since the mid-1800's, there have been multiple waves of Jewish migration from Europe and the Middle East to Shanghai, China.  A vibrant international city, Shanghai welcomed Jews with open arms.  This session will explore the history of Jewish Shanghai, the relationship between the Jews and the Chinese, as well as what you can see and learn for yourself if you are lucky enough to go there.

It promises to be a very enlightening presentation.  We'll follow it up with some Q&A.

Very light noshes will be available. 

Please contact Beverly at or 215-557-3777 to RSVP and for her address.  Seating is limited!

Stay tuned for information about additional Sunday Salons.
