Restaurant Lectures on Judaism Sponsored by Reform Synagogues in N. Y.

The New York Federation of Reform Synagogues announced today it would sponsor a series of weekly luncheon lectures and discussions on Judaism at a luxury mid-town Manhattan restaurant.

The sessions, called “Learning at Luncheon” were organized for businessmen in the Manhattan area who are members of Reform synagogues in the New York metropolitan area. Meetings will be held each Tuesday, with the first one scheduled for March 28. Dr. Bernard Bamberger, president of the Central Conference of American rabbis, will present the first lecture.

Rabbi Daniel L. Davis, federation director, said the program was a “first” for a Jewish religious group and said it was part of the movement’s program to provide opportunities for educating the adult Jew.
