Our Krasne Scholar-In-Residence Program invites speakers from a wide range of interests and abilities to appeal to members in various ways. The program sheds light on important modern Jewish issues through formal and informal presentations of intellectual and educational value.
History of the Program
Following in a long tradition of community giving, the Krasne Scholar-in-Residence Program was started by Esther L. Krasne to honor her husband, H.W. Krasne, at The New Reform Temple in the early 1980s. Together with her daughters, Esther had always expressed an interest in the literary and religious enrichment at the Temple.
