Discussion Without Dessert-Being A Pro-Israel Voice In Our Community

The fourth speaker of "Discussion Without Dessert" will be Julie Monkarsh Gadinsky, advocate for Israel and a proponent for strengthening the Jewish community. Join us for an evening where we will learn and ask questions of a remarkable, accomplished Jewish community leader and activist who is passionate for the State of Israel.

As a former school psychologist for Beverly Hills United School District, Julie Monkarsh Gadinsky consults with families to ensure children receive the help they need to succeed in school. Julie is Board Chair of Hillel at UCLA, a Federation Lion of Judah and a Wexner Fellow. She is a member of the AIPAC National Council and served on the Jewish Federation Caring for Jews in Need Allocations Committee for eight years. She also served as mentor for the Federation's Leadership Institute and Special Needs Task Force.

A graduate of Beverly Hills High School, Julie received her bachelors degree in sociology from UCLA and her Masters in Educational  Psychology from CSUN. When not baking challah, cheering for the Los Angeles Rams or rooting for the UCLA Bruins, she enjoys time with her adult sons, Jonah and Isaac, and  Larry, her significant other.
For more information, contact DWD coordinator Dorothy Salkin at (310) 475-4696 or

Since we will be together virtually, Dorothy is sharing one of her favorite recipes from her classes and invites you to make it prior to the evening and enjoy it during Discussion Without Dessert.
