Sarah Gottesman Lubin Program For Creative Arts & Crafts

Sarah Gottesman Lubin was an avid crafter who especially enjoyed the soft arts of quilting and needlepoint. She was an active member of the Pomegranate Guild. After her passing in December 2007, the Sarah Gottesman Lubin Program for Creative Arts and Crafts was established in her memory at the JCC so that others could explore and enjoy the exciting world of crafts and culture. This endowment provides opportunities for people to experience the sheer love and joy of creating something of beauty with their own hands. Pre-registration required for all creative arts classes.

Sunday of Strong Women

Hear the voices of three strong women with unique stories to tell. Audacious and tenacious, three women authors will engage, enlighten and entertain.

One of our most popular events is re-imagined to suit our times. Though we won't be doing this event in person, the heart of this wonderful day will be the same.

This year's authors are: 

Janice Kaplan: The Genius of Women: From Overlooked to Changing the World
Even in this time of rethinking women's roles, we define genius almost exclusively through male achievement. New York Times best­selling jour­nal­ist, Kaplan will discuss the pow­er­ful forces that have rigged the sys­tem, and cel­e­brate the women genius­es past and present who have tri­umphed any­way.  

Rachel Beanland: Florence Adler Swims Forever 
Based on a true story from Rachel Beanland’s family, this debut novel begins with a shocking tragedy, and tells the story of how three generations of the Adler family grapple with heartbreak, romance, and the weight of family secrets.

Eilene Zimmerman: Smacked: A Story of White-Collar Ambition, Addiction, and Tragedy
After finding her ex-husband dead, Zimmerman learned that he, a senior partner at a prominent law firm, was a drug addict. She realized that while he was alive, she lacked the confidence to question him and push back. Finding her voice, she tells the story of how competition and ambition can drive addiction and unhappiness. 

Ticket includes a treatbox* of homemade baked goods which will be delivered to your home** to enjoy during the program.
*treatbox is not certified Kosher
**treatbox only available to homes within the delivery zone. Call 201.408.1456 for further info. 

Event sponsors: Kim and Marc Harrison, Lisa Beth and Greg Meisel, Ilisa and David Lansey

Supported in part by the James H. Grossmann Memorial Jewish Book Endowment Fund
