JFS Luncheons

© TANGRAM (Harald Stuckmann)


JFS Luncheons aren’t likely to resume very soon, as Spokane is just now in Phase 2 of our state’s phased reopening plan, and even in Phase 3 gatherings of 50 people or fewer cannot include members of vulnerable populations. Since JFS has had to cancel several luncheons in a row, we want to offer a few other ways our luncheon crowd can connect in the meantime.

This summer, we will offer some “virtual programs” via Zoom to community members on our luncheon email list (and anyone else who’d like to join). All are free of charge.


July 23, 2-3 p.m.: Discussion of the 2004 documentary “The Ritchie Boys” and Q&A with Dr. Guy Stern, who is featured in the film! This event is sponsored by Dr. Roslyn Schindler, who will also introduce Dr. Stern.

July 30, 2-3 p.m.: Zoom Social Hour

Aug. 6, 2-3 p.m.: Zoom Social Hour

Aug. 13: Maura Roberts, executive director of the Hebrew Free Loan Association of Washington State, talks about what HFLA does, including the Jewish values that underlie their work and how they serve Eastern Washington.

Aug. 20, 2-3 p.m.: Zoom Social Hour

Aug. 27: Program TBD


If you would like to attend a virtual program, you may use the links and passwords that will go out to our luncheon email list. If you don’t get our luncheon emails, please contact JFS to get the links and passwords.
