The 2020 Main Event Featuring Mitch Albom

Co-chairs Holly and Hal Levinson invite you to join them at the Federation’s 2020 Main Event on Sunday, January 26, 2020 at 7 PM at Temple Israel featuring Mitch Albom. The Main Event is the Jewish Federation’s most widely attended event of the campaign season.

Mitch Albom is an internationally renowned and best-selling author, sportswriter, screenwriter, playwright, radio and television broadcaster, and musician. His books have collectively sold more than 39 million copies worldwide, have been published in forty-nine territories and in forty-five languages around the world, and have been made into Emmy Award-winning and critically-acclaimed television movies.

While nationally recognized for his sports writing, Albom is perhaps best known for the themes of hope and kindness that weave through his books, plays, and films. In his talks and presentations, he brings the same inspiring message of community building, giving, and purpose. Albom shares stories about faith amongst the poor, the well-to-do, the homeless, and those who once felt God did not exist. He addresses questions such as: What do we all have in common in our hearts — no matter what house of worship we attend? How does the belief in something bigger than us give us insight, wisdom, and comfort? How does faith help when bad things happen? And what can we learn from each other’s faith that can make the world, the workplace, our neighborhoods and our daily lives more harmonious? Expanding on themes already developed in his bestselling books Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Mitch Albom weaves a captivating and uplifting message about the potential in all of us for a giving, meaningful life.

Main Event tickets are $36 each and are available online at or by phone at 704-944-6757.
