Rather than honoring specific individuals for selected awards as it does each year,  JEF’s 50th anniversary will be an opportunity to honor all of its past presidents, according to event chair Cathy Bart. “This will be an event you don’t want to miss. After all, 50 years of service to the greater New Orleans Jewish community is a big achievement!”

A kosher-style dairy brunch will be served. Kosher meals from Casablanca Restaurant are available by request.

Reservations to the benefit are $55.00 per person or a table of 10 for $550.00. According to IRS guidelines, the ticket prices are non-deductible because they represent actual value received. Patron reservations are $150.00 each, of which $95.00 is tax-deductible.

A special rate of $8.00 is available for parking inside the Canal Place parking lot.

For more information or to make a reservation, call Ellen Abrams or Patti Lengsfield at 504-524-4559. Reservations may be made online here.

This event is underwritten in part through the generosity of the Whitney Bank, Francis L. Fraenkel, Jean and Saul Mintz Family Foundation, and the professional accounting firm of Postlethwaite & Netterville.
