Levi Strauss:  It’s All in the "Genes"
This lecture focuses on the life of one of California”s most well known pioneers.  Levi Strauss was a prominent businessman and philanthropist both in the Jewish community and to the general public in the San Francisco Bay area.  From modest beginnings, born to a Jewish family in Europe, Levi Strauss arrived in the United States to find his fortune.  He will always be remembered for his charity, as well as for his fashion-world “jeans” and the legacy he left to the American west.
