  • My Home Is Someone’s Workplace: A Workshop for Domestic Employers
  • And more!
Plus a multigenerational keynote presentation featuring former Director of the JCC’s Saul and Carole Zabar Nursery School and Founder of The Shefa School, Ilana Ruskay-Kidd,John Ruskay (her father), and Daniel Ruskay-Kidd (her son), who will share their stories of how social consciousness has been woven into the fabric of their family.
