The Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life dramatically expands Jewish cultural programming in small towns and big cities across the region through our Southern States Jewish Programming Series.
We help communities like yours to host events by authors, speakers, musicians, comedians, actors, and storytellers that will appeal to a diverse range of interests.

Our partnership with the presenters and the congregations and/or organizations who engage them is a win for everyone. Presenters gain access to southern audiences through the ISJL. Congregations, JCCs, colleges, and other organizations are often able to partner with others in close proximity in order to share travel expenses. The ISJL arranges all travel and hotel plans for the presenters, and provides marketing materials and press releases for the congregation. We send presenter handouts, books, and other relevant materials in advance to facilitate a professionally planned and successful event. For the enhancement of adult education, outreach opportunities, entertainment, fundraising, and family programming, the ISJL offers something for everyone! Please view the current roster of scholars and artists available through the Southern States Jewish Programming Series. For more information, contact Ann Zivitz Kientz.
