On March 1, 2011, the Rhea Hirsch School of Education (RHSOE) Alumni Association hosted an Alumni Day of Learning on the Jack H. Skirball Campus in Los Angeles and New York campus of HUC-JIR, entitled "Defining Community." More than 40 alumni participated and were linked via electronic classrooms on two campuses. The highlight of the day was a cross-campus (via videoconference) panel featuring Jewish professionals who all "build community" in innovative ways. The Day of Learning was planned by members of the Alumni Association's Sustaining Alumni Education Working Group and featured panelists included: Cantor Yonah Kliger and RHSOE alumni Rabbi Paul Kipnes; Debra Sagan Massey, RJE; Rabbi Lydia Medwin; and Ira Wise, RJE. Funding for this Day of Learning came from the Lieberman Family Fund for Continuing RHSOE Alumni Education and was supported by Alumni Dues.
