Weiss is the director and Stephen H. Frishberg is chair of the board. This year's event will be held at the Gershman Y for the last time, as the Adolph & Rose Levis Museum is moving due to an expansion of the Y. Therefore, this year's event theme is "Remembering Our Past, Honoring our Present, and Looking To Our Future." A new Virtual Museum/website will be launched on this day as well. The media sponsor for this event is the Jewish Exponent.
