Rabbi Albert Lewis z''l Lecture Series


The Rabbi Albert Lewis (z"l)  Lectureship was established to honor Temple Isaiah’s founding rabbi, who led our congregation to become active in the Civil Rights movement, in efforts to end the Vietnam War, and many other causes. Through this fund we invite distinguished individuals whose actions are contributing to Tikkun Olam.


2017 Lecture


Guest Speaker, Tom Steyer

“Tom Steyer is a business leader and philanthropist who believes we have a moral responsibility to give back and help ensure that every family shares the benefits of economic opportunity, education, and a healthy climate.”– nextgenclimate.org


In 2010, Steyer, the founder of Farallon Capital and cofounder of Beneficial State Bank, and his wife signed The Giving Pledge to donate half of their fortune to charity during their lifetime. He has become a leading figure in environmental causes, being among the top donors of the 2014 election cycle, and an environmental advisor to the Obama administration. Steyer is on the board of Next Generation, a non-profit that intends to tackle children’s issues and the environment. Steyer is NextGen Climate’s founder.


“Today, we are seeing clean energy compete head-to-head with fossil fuels — and win. But it isn't enough. As a nation we must accelerate this transition to a clean energy economy to win the global race for clean energy jobs and protect our economy from the devastating impacts of climate change" – Tom Steyer
