About this event
Join the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans and the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life for a special event on March 11, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. CT.
“The Making of a Mensch," a film from acclaimed director, Tiffany Shlain, is an outgrowth of National Character Day — a day that aims to get people talking about how to be the best versions of themselves. Character Day was created by Shlain’s nonprofit, Let it Ripple, and it quickly gained traction, with some 1,500 schools and organizations around the world participating.
This presentation will explore what it means to be a mensch, through the lens of the wonderful ancient Jewish teachings of Mussar.
Tiffany Shlain is mom to Odessa and Blooma, wife of Rebooter Ken Goldberg, founder of The Webby Awards, and filmmaker. Tiffany and her family unplug for "Technology Shabbats” every week-starting 7 years ago at the National Day of Unplugging.
This event is sponsored by Touro Infirmary/LCMC, and is open to Lions of Judah and JNEXT. Lions of Judah are those women in our community who make a minimum household gift of $5,000 to the 2021 Jewish Federation Annual Campaign. JNEXT offers programming for those between the ages of 40-59 in the Greater New Orleans Jewish community.
