Background:

Judy Hershberg wrote…
It is my pleasure to announce that Wayne Senville has graciously consented to take over the
reins at Lunch & Learn, the once-a-month program that I have been honored to chair since
2007. It was time for a change, and Wayne is eminently qualified to step in and continue to
seek out speakers and presentations that reflect our Jewish and community interests.
Wayne, who holds a law degree and a Master’s in City Planning, came to Vermont in 1988 with
his family to accept the position of Director of Local and Regional Planning Assistance in the VT
Dept. of Housing and Community Affairs. He subsequently founded a citizen planners journal,
which gained nationwide readership, and was the recipient of many awards and honors in the
planning field. Attuned to social justice, both he and his wife, Lila Shapero, continue to have an
active voice in neighborhood and community issues, and beyond. Wayne himself was a Lunch &
Learn presenter in 2008 (“Across America on Route 50: Conversations with Citizens and
Planners on the State of Our Cities & Towns) and again in 2019 (“How the 1903 Kishinev
Pogrom Shocked the World”). Look for an exciting L&L series in 2022/23, with innovative ideas, including panel discussions. A shift from Thursdays to Tuesdays, too!
