With gratitude, this weekend is made possible by the generosity of the Wyner family, who established the Wyner Lecture series in 1985 to honor the life and legacy of Rudolph H. and Sara G. Wyner, and to celebrate their parents’ love of Jewish art, music, and folkways.  Attend the full weekend of programs and join us on Friday and Sunday as well!
