Spring Benefit Honors Lori and Zach Schreiber
Nearly 350 people gathered together for the Stephen Wise Free Synagogue Spring Benefit on May 15, raising more than $1 million. This extraordinary support will enable us to have an even bigger impact on our local community and beyond. The gala event honored Lori and Zach Schreiber for their remarkable contributions to the Jewish community. Honored guest Ehud Barak, former prime minister of Israel, participated in a lively Q&A with Robert Satloff of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. (Photo by Michael Priest Photography.)
