Join Havurah on the Hill for lay-led Kabbalat Shabbat services and dinner. This month we are thrilled to welcome as our guest speaker Alan Solomont, former U.S. Ambassador to Spain and Andorra and current Dean of the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts University. Dean Solomont will discuss what happened politically in November 2018, what it says about the future, and the potential for young voters to change America’s political landscape.

Dean Solomont's dynamic career has been marked by political activism, public service, and organizing for the greater good. He was appointed by President Obama to serve as the U.S. Ambassador to Spain and Andorra from 2009-2013. Alan is the former Chairman of the Corporation for National and Community Service. He was first appointed to the board by President Clinton in 2000, reappointed by President George W. Bush in 2007 and elected chair in 2009. He has also served as the National Finance Chair of the Democratic National Committee. And of course, Alan is a dedicated Tufts Jumbo! Over the years he has filled the roles of student, Instructor, Tufts parent, Trustee, and Board Chair.

6:30 PM – Appetizers and Schmoozing
7:00 PM – Shabbat Services
8:15 PM – Featured Speaker
