2022 Symposium planned for May 15, 2022

By the Grace of G‑d

Aleph Institute 13th Annual “Second Chance” Symposium


Dedicated to the memory of Dr. Barry Lembersky


14 Iyar, 5782 - May 15, 2022

Join us to learn more about our work in the criminal justice system, how it affects every community in the US., the impact Aleph Institute is having in this community. 

Learn how we can change the life of a man or a woman who is incarcerated, and what we as a society can do to bring change to a system that needs re-thinking. Especially over the past year, when so much attention has been brought to our criminal justice system, there is now bi-partisan support for change.


Be part of the effort to effect change, and support and congratulate our volunteers who dedicate endless hours to help those who so often have no one else to turn to.

Join us as we honor Mrs. Anne Davis as "Volunteer of the Year" and Rabbi Joseph Kolakowski as "Chaplain of the year".
