The Jewish Study Center mourns the passing October 25 of Rabbi Janice Garfunkel, its friend and former director.
In cooperation with her family, we have agreed to establish a Rabbi Janice Garfunkel Memorial Fund, which will support a lecture or other educational event on a subject that held meaning for Janice in her life and work. The event will take place on the occasion of her yahrtzeit, either once or annually, as funds permit.
Those who wish to donate in her memory can do so via this website by clicking on DONATE or by filling out the Donation Form and sending it in.
