Hilda Vallin Feigenbaum Lecture Series
The Hilda Vallin Feigenbaum Memorial Lecture Series brings programs of outstanding social, political and cultural significance to the Berkshires.
Hilda's sons, Dr. Armand Feigenbaum and Dr. Donald Feigenbaum, leaders in the field of Total Quality Management, established the Lecture Series as a living memorial to their mother's spirit and interest in Judaism's traditions. Upon their deaths, the Drs. Feigenbaum have created a Hilda Vallin Feigenbaum Memorial Lecture Endowment Fund that will ensure continuing lectures in perpetuity.
Each year the Temple hosts speakers from fields such as politics, journalism and social action for a lecture that is free and open to the public.
