The Shearith Israel League


The Shearith Israel League, founded in 1919, is a social, cultural and educational organization that hosts events for the community throughout the year. Some of the highlights are lectures by writers and scholars related to our Sephardic heritage, game night, square dancing, a yearly blood drive and an annual dinner-dance. We are eager for new members and new leaders. We invite all who might be interested to attend one of our warm and welcoming meetings or events. For information, please contact George Bulow.
