60th Celebration
Speaker Series:
Shabbat Guest Speaker,
Samuel Farber
Friday, August 23 at 6pm
Join us on Friday, August 23rd for our first special guest speaker and CSS Alum, Samuel Farber, Vice President, Digital Media at National Basketball Association (NBA) .

Did being a member of this Jewish community or his affiliation with The University of Pennsylvania Hillel influence Sam's career path?

In this Social Media world, where word travels to millions in a matter of seconds, how does Judaism fit it?

- " It is generally not a sin to repeat things that have been told "in the presence of three persons." The idea is that if it is told in the presence of three persons, it is already public knowledge, and no harm can come of retelling it"
(from Judaism 101)

How about 'in the presence' of millions??

Come hear an insider's thoughts! And learn a few interesting facts about the NBA, too
