On the evening of Thursday, October 19 2023, we welcomed our valued Friends of the JPL for our annual thank-you cocktail reception, and then we kicked off Jewish Book Month 2023 with a keynote address from renowned Montreal physician Dr. Phil Gold. What a memorable night!
It was a joy to reconnect with many long-standing Friends of the JPL, and it was such a pleasure to hear Dr. Gold speak about his new memoir, Gold’s Rounds, before making himself available to sign copies of his new book for everyone who came out.
Special thanks to the Cummings and Gold Families as well as the Strategic Charitable Giving Foundation for making this fabulous night possible!
