JFCS Announces Endowed Forum Series in Honor of Lillian O. Seligman

Lillian O. Seligman loved to learn and laugh. She had interests that spanned many topics. As Board President of Jewish Family & Career Services from 1994 – 1997, she had an active interest in the growth and services of the organization. To celebrate her love of learning, Seligman’s family has created an endowment in her memory to offer an annual forum to the community.

The series, Contemporary Thought, will hold its inaugural event on September 20 with Roy Blount, Jr., author of 23 books and panelist on NPR’s Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me! Blount has been described as “America’s most cherished humorist” by The New York Times Book Review. His sharp wit and “foxy yokelism” will provide a special night for all who attend. Seligman’s family and friends are involved in the planning of this event.

Roy Blount, Jr. will speak at 7:00 p.m. at The Temple. Sponsorship opportunities are available by contacting Beverly Bromley at 502-452-6341 ext. 223 or bbromley@jfcslouisville.org.
