April 9 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Join Hirsch Wise, grandson and third generation member of the Wise family, to learn about Hershel Manischewitz and his relationship with A. B. Wise. Hear how their bonding led to the future establishment of A.B. Wise & Sons, Inc. and, over time, four generations of the Wise family managing the business and carrying on the Manischewitz legacy.
This lecture will include details of their relationship in Israel, Hershel whisking A.B. out of Israel when he was enlisted in the Turkish army, and how A.B. became the first-ever appointed Manischewitz distributor in 1928 – 1998. It will also focus on the Wise family contribution, not only to the business, but also to Jewish life in Cincinnati and Israel.
Drinks and appetizers will be served.
