The Annual Harry z”l and Evelyn Silver Scholar-In-Residence

Endowed by long-time congregants, Harry z”l and Evelyn Silver, this annual program brings master teachers — nationally-known experts in their fields — to Old York Road Temple-Beth Am. Over more than three decades, we have learned from the most brilliant rabbis, cantors and Jewish educators, danced and sang with creative musicians and have been inspired by social activists. We invite community members of all ages to learn together with us, as we know that learning is a life-long pursuit.
