hosted by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni and the Palm Beach Synagogue
The American Council of Trustees and Alumni and the Palm Beach Synagogue welcome you to the inaugural season of the Levy Form for Open Discourse.
The forum is dedicated to fostering a spirit of fearless inquiry into the most urgent social and political topics of our times. Through the generosity of Paul and Karen Levy, forum programs are free to all who wish to attend.
Our first series of programs will focus on freedom of expression and how it particularly relates to contemporary Jewish life and attitudes toward the State of Israel. All presentations will be held at the Palm Beach Synagogue, 120 North County Road, Palm Beach, with a reception beginning at 5:00 p.m. and the presentation at 6:00 p.m., followed by an opportunity for question and answer.
Paul Levy is the founder and managing director of JLL Partners, and Karen Levy is a trustee of Rockefeller University. Their philanthropy spans healthcare, the arts, Jewish Studies, and especially education. Mr. Levy is a member of the Board of Directors of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni. The Levys reside in Palm Beach.
