The Notorious RBG – A Supreme Afternoon – 11/11/18 at 2pm

There’s power in the house today! You won’t want to miss LBT member Marilyn Levin’s informative tour through the new Skirball lecture on the Notorious RBG (that’s the Supreme Court’s Ruth Bader Ginsburg… and NOT the rap artist Notorious BIG). After this amazing tour, everyone is invited to the President and First Lady’s nearby home (LBT President, Lloyd and First Lady, Allison Segan) for a scrumptious tea. A perfect day of power from beginning to end.

Hosted by: Allison & Lloyd Segan

Gratifying Gravlax: Mastering the Art of Insanely Tasty Cured Salmon – 3/10/19 at 11am

The self-declared West Side King of Gravlax (aka Rabbi Benjamin Ross) and Liz Bennett welcome you into their home where the Rabbi will prepare an artisanal, hand-crafted, lovingly cured gravlax feast for 10 lucky Leo Baeckers.

Ask yourself: Do you crave smoked salmon more than oxygen? Do you dream about frisbee size bagels to transport more lox down
your gullet? Do you believe the lusciousness of salmon is a gift of the Gods? Well, whatever you answered, come! We will nosh on gravlax, drink premium coffee, learn about curing salmon, and make some of the “pink gold” to bring home. Be assured, once you master the simple art of curing salmon you will finally be a contribution to society and the star of any potluck.

Barney Greengrass step back! Saul Zabar move aside!
