Dor L’Dor. Generation to Generation. The theme of families passing on Jewish values through the generations was woven throughout Federation’s recent Men’s Event.

CEO Steve Morris welcomed guests, who celebrated the kickoff of our 2012 Campaign at the exciting new venue on San Diego Bay.  Attendees were inspired and moved by local stories of three San Diego families (Sergio, Roberto and Ricardo Jinich; Bernard Z”L and James Lewis; and Joel, Brian, Brad and Lou Tauber) who lead by example and are committed to passing their Jewish values on to the next generation. 

A highlight of the program was a stimulating address by Keynote Speaker, Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice Chairman, Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.  A grandfather of 17, Hoenlein addressed the importance of family, philanthropy and Federation as well as talking about issues facing the Middle East and Israel.
