We are pleased to share our second Community Engagement Forum program with you:

Senator Russ Feingold
Senator Feingold will share with us what he has been doing since leaving the Senate in 2011. He will share his teaching experiences at various prestigious universities across the country, his appointment in the Obama Administration as an envoy to the Great Lakes Region of Africa, and his current job as Chief Executive Officer of the American Constitution Society. As a former member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, we will ask him to provide his insight into the challenges that lie ahead in U.S. foreign relations in the next presidential administration.

For many years, the Jewish Federation of Madison hosted the Jewish Business and Professional Roundtable (JBPR) at Nakoma Golf Club. After a lapse, and under current gathering restrictions due to COVID-19, we initiated a new virtual program offering inspired by the JBPR series, the Community Engagement Forum.

The forum will include four programs between the fall of 2020 and into the spring of 2021. All community members, not just our business leaders, are invited to engage in these programs about important topics presented by interesting people both in the Jewish and non-Jewish communities. We hope the presentations will educate, inform, and inspire participants to be more aware and involved in issues concerning our local community.

For now, each program will be presented live via Zoom and will be about one hour.
