Connecting With Culture was a Musical Treat

Nearly 50 women participated in the Women’s Philanthropy Connecting with Culture event on Friday, November 18, and they were treated to the Louisville Orchestra’s Coffee Concert, lunch overlooking the plaza behind the Kentucky Center for the Arts and a visit with the LO’s charismatic director, Teddy Abrams.

This second event in the Jewish Federation’s “Connecting with” series was hosted by Viki Diaz and Karen Abrams. The women enjoyed a series of pieces by classical composers based on the works of Shakespeare. The lunch gave them a chance to visit with old friends and talk with people they might not have met before.

A Ladies’ Chanukah Party is planned for Tuesday, December 13 at 7 p.m. Register in advance at
