This is one Saturday Night Fever that promises to make the heart race – after all, the 2011 Orthodox Union National Convention will feature “The Cost of Jewish Living,” one of the most talked about topics in the Orthodox community today. The event will take place at 8 p.m. on Saturday night, January 15, in Teaneck at OU member synagogue Congregation Keter Torah, 600 Roemer Avenue. Admission is free and open to all.

Anchored by radio host Nachum Segal, it will feature a panel consisting of:

• Robert P. Aronson: President, Birthright Israel and The Steinhardt Foundation;

• Margy-Ruth Davis: Executive Vice President, Perry Davis Associates and community activist, specializing in institutional development;

• William Rapfogel: CEO of the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty;

• Hon. David Greenfield: Member of New York City Council, representing District 44 in Brooklyn; he has been successful in educational legislation and policy for non-public schools.

“We know very well that there are no easy answers to this situation. Nevertheless, it’s important that the people get a chance to hear other points of view and to contribute their own ideas,” declared Emanuel J. Adler of Teaneck, Chairman of the Convention.

The Saturday night session is one of the highlights of OU2011. The Convention will continue the next day, Sunday, January 16, with a major ‘One Day Conference on Jewish Life,’ also open to all. To be held at The Hilton in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey, participants will be able to choose from among more than 25 sessions regarding Torah Life, Communal Life and Synagogue Life – including a special session on “US-Israel Relations”; and plenaries to be led by OU Executive Vice President Rabbi Steven Weil on “The Orthodox Role in the Jewish Community of Tomorrow” and “What is Mesorah?” to be led by Rabbi Dr. Tzvi Hersh Weinreb, OU Executive Vice President, Emeritus.
