2013 May NACE Meeting
Understanding Modern Jewish Life Events
If you think all you need to know about a Jewish Wedding or a Jewish Mitzvah is to not serve Bacon or Shellfish, this meeting is for YOU. This meeting will break the myths of the Modern Jewish Life Event and you will leave with a better understanding of the Jewish culture, how to market and do business within the Jewish community and what things you should always ask and never do when presenting to the Jewish community.
Our speaker is Michele Schwartz the creator and editor-in-chief of The Modern Jewish Wedding (MJW) and The Modern Jewish Mitzvah (MJM), the go-to websites for Jewish life cycle events. Michele bridges the richest Jewish traditions, the freshest trends, and the dreams and wishes of the families celebrating these once-in-a-lifetime passages.
As Director of Life Cycles and Celebrations for Temple Emanu-El in Dallas, Michele coordinated over 200 life cycle events each year. She attended every wedding researsal held at the temple, working alongside florists, caterers, decorators and even DJ’s as a liaison between families and a rabbanic staff she came to love. Michele also planned every holiday celebration for the Temple, enabling a deepening of her love and knowledge of the rituals and celebrations that mark the Jewish faith.Our panelists include:
Michele celebrated her own life cycles as a child growing up in Austin, TX at Congregation Beth Israel. She went on to become a die-hard University of Texas fan, while studying for her degree in Communications. She is a member of both Temple Beth Shalom & Congregation Agudas Achim (local Austin Reform & Conservative congregations) and is active with the Jewish Business Network. She is the Immediate Past President of the Austin Section of the National Council of Jewish Women. She is also an alumna of Leadership Texas 2007 and serves as the Vice President of Programs for Freelance Austin an affiliate of the Austin Professional Chapter of the Association for Women in Communications.

COMMUNITY SERVICE: STREAMS AND VALLEYS – a Tarrant County organization that works to keep the Trinity River clean and safe. From their website: “We work on things like keeping the river’s water clean, building new trails, attracting bluebirds and creating master plans that keep all the river’s resources on track. We’ve been doing it since 1971, and 40 miles of trails and 8,000 trees later, we know there’s even more great stuff around the bend” We will be collecting money for the Streams & Valleys in our piggy banks.
