If you weren’t able to be there on April 7th when Beacon Hebrew Alliance celebrated its centennial, you now get a chance to see what it was like and enjoy the festivities again and again. Peter Skorewicz of Video Ventures documented the gala event at the Roundhouse. We love how he captured not just the featured speakers, but also many of the guests, and the settings of the events. We hope you enjoy watching this video.
