This is the second year in a row the Club is hosting The Jewish Pavilion. Typically, a nonprofit is not invited to return in back-to-back years. But because last year's event resulted in the highest at- tendance "United For a Pur- pose" event of the year (200 compared to the next closest attendance of 110), the Club extended a repeat invitation. 100 percent of proceeds from the evening's event will be Temple Israel, a progres- was made possible thanks to sive Conservative synagogue, a collaboration with Temple prides itself on its lay leader- Shir Shalom and the Jew- shipduringservicesandTorah ish Federation of Greater readings.
