Laura Lauder and Ora Gittelson-David
Hausner Development

Our seventh-grade Avodah La'Olam class recently welcomed Alumni Parent Laura Lauder for a lively discussion about Philanthropy.

Laura, who in addition to being a proud Hausner alumni parent and past board member, is also a Bay Area Jewish philanthropist, spoke about the important Jewish concept of Derech Eretz, which refers to a code of conduct, or the "way of the world." For Laura and her family, this means that philanthropy is an essential part of their lives, guided by Jewish values.
