The annual event will be the ninth such meeting held at the White House, according the Don Shulman, President and CEO of AJAS, which is headquartered in Washington, D.C. “As the central address for Jewish eldercare,” he explained, “it is important for us to be center stage on the political front and remind the White House of the innovation and industry leadership the Jewish community represents.”

Lewis has been asked to offer remarks on the resilience of Village Shalom and the Kansas City Jewish community following the tragic events of April 13.
