Farash Community Lecture
The Max and Marian Farash Community Lecture is made possible by the generous support of a grant from the Max and Marian Farash Charitable Foundation, a philanthropic organization based in Rochester that values the importance of education and entrepreneurship and has deep consideration for religious and civic communities. The foundation provides grants to nonprofits in Monroe and Ontario counties, half of which are for projects and programs with ties to Jewish life.
At the Colleges, the lectures are a collaborative effort among the Abbe Center for Jewish Life, the Religious Life Office and the Religious Studies Department. The Abbe Center for Jewish Life provides an environment for people of Jewish faith or with Jewish interests to gather and socialize, and to celebrate Shabbat and other Jewish holidays.
