In 2007 HBT created a permanent endowment to support this annual fall lecture in honor of Allen Worters (of blessed memory). Our goal for the endowment is to raise $7200 (400 × chai), so that the fund will continue in perpetuity, and provide an honorarium from the accrued interest. The endowment is now housed at Boston Community Capital, a certified community development finance institution. Please make checks payable to HBT designating the Annual Allen J.
