The Dor L’Dor Society event has been cancelled due to the presenter's schedule. We hope to reschedule this event at a later date.

The Dor L’ Dor Society invites you to attend a special event featuring Gianfranco Grande, Executive Vice President of Partners for Sacred Places, one of only two national historic preservation organizations. Gianfranco will speak about historic houses of worship and their cultural significance as part of our national heritage. He will discuss the importance of preserving sacred places as a way of honoring the past and propelling their legacy into the future.
