Summer at The Brownstone, NY: A review
Summer at The Brownstone was “sizzling” hot with activities. Savvy young Jewish adults enjoyed the many networking events, relaxing Shabbat dinners, young professional schmoozes and classes, and, of course the exciting cultural events. Boston University Alumni enjoyed a reunion of their campus Meor program, and hundreds of young professionals attended classes with David Lichtenstein, Chairman and CEO of The Lightstone Group; Andrew Suzman, Senior VP for Capital World Investors; and Igor Chernomzav, co-founder of Hard Eight Futures, LLC. Students from NYU Dental School, and other young professionals relaxed over Shabbat dinners, while over 80 young professional women from the “Souled” Learning Group gathered at a summer kick-off event to collect valuable tips from Mrs.Chana Levitan, best-selling author of “I Only Want to Get Married Once”.
Residential trips and cultural events also received their spotlight. Students from universities in the UK, including Oxford, Cambridge and the London School of Economics, enjoyed their three week NY experience at The Brownstone. Over 100 people listened intently to Grammy Award nominee, Phillipe Quint in his violin concerto, and as many attended a smashingly successful Tishbi Launch event. Sixty art connoisseurs enjoyed the works of noted artists, Laura Brunetti and Margarita Korol, in an event co hosted by The Brownstone Russian Initiative and the Russian American Foundation, while Valentin Yudashkin, Russia’s most prominent fashion designer delighted a crowd in a unique presentation and fashion show experience. The Russian Initiative also welcomed young professionals from the Russian-speaking Jewish community in the city to an evening of Jewish Mysticism, Hookah, and great conversations with Rabbi Mordechai Becher.
Many more groups have rented space at The Brownstone for their unique experience and we look forward to the next installment of exciting activities. Contact Jen April to schedule your next Brownstone event (646)-561-9829.
