I loved this, overflow crowd, great chef and translator, with support from the hosts. Promoting intercultural interactions and understanding is great.

I thought the event was very powerful. The speaker was great and touched on so many points that we can all put into practice to make our communities a better place. I thoroughly enjoyed Symone Sanders speech.

Was disappointed that this event coincided with the beginning of Yom Kippur

Talk was very interesting. It could have been much MORE interesting and more easily followable if it hadn't been such a struggle to figure out what part of the projected graphs, figures, etc. speaker was referring to. Perhaps due to oblique angle from podium, or...(?) the pointer was mostly not visible to audience. Too bad speaker had not been instructed to use the mouse pointer that would have been clearly visible and present on both projection screens.
