The S.F.-based Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund will hold its second annual Day of Phil-anthropy on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in San Francisco. The event is scheduled to run from 7:45 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Things will kick off with a 31⁄2-hour tax and estate-planning seminar by expert Paul N. Frimmer, followed at noon by a community luncheon to honor past federation president Ron Kaufman, who served from 1984 to 1986.
The luncheon will include a keynote address from Dennis Ross titled “The Election Is Over: What Lies Ahead for U.S. Middle East Policy?” Ross has helped shaped U.S. involvement in the Middle East peace process for the past 12 years, serving as a leading diplomat during both the George H.W. Bush and Clinton administrations, and writing several books on the topic. Currently, he is with the Washington Institute for Near East Policy after having served two years as adviser to both President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Free philanthropic workshops will round out the rest of the schedule from 2 to 4:30 p.m. They include titles such as “Multi-Generational Approaches to Philanthropy,” with three generations of philanthropists sharing their journeys; “Creating Legacy by Crafting Inspira-tional Family Stories,” co-sponsored by the Women’s Philanthropy group; and “Hot Topics in Jewish Philanthropy: Innovative and Entrepreneurial Ideas,” co-sponsored by the JCF’s Young Adult Division. The day will conclude with a reception from 4:30 to 6 p.m.
