Speaking of Jewish! with Kivi Bernhard this Sunday

Claire Wolff

Aish HaTorah is proud to present The Annual Rabbi Noah Weinberg Memorial Lecture dedicated by the Axelbaum family in memory of Jerry Axelbaum, a"h on Sunday, Feb 16 at 7 pm at the Hilton St. Louis Frontenac, 1335 S. Lindbergh Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63131. 

Our guest speaker is Kivi Bernhard, award winning speaker and internationally acclaimed author.
The topic is "Speaking of Jewish! The journeys of living loud and proud as a Jew while keynoting to Fortune 500 corporations across the globe and how "they" see "us".

Taking the professional corporate speakers circuit by storm, Kivi Bernhard has been
requested to keynote audiences from the Bahamas to Bangkok. Described by a leading
international speaker bureau as “one of the most promising and talented speakers in the
world today” Kivi was recognized by Meetings Magazine in 2010 as a “top ten platform
speakers in America”. A passionate orthodox Jew, noted author and internationally
renowned speaker, Kivi Bernhard has held the stages of many Fortune 500 platforms
across the globe, sharing his award winning business keynote with management,
leadership and sales teams, enthralling audiences as large as 6000 attendees. The son of a
world renowned South African Jewish community leader, Rabbi NM Bernhard,  Kivi is
known as “an amalgamation of Crocodile Dun Dee and Jerry McGuire with a yarmulke”.
This unique opportunity has allowed for the ultimate “inside” story of this thing the
secular world calls “The Jew”!
