The inaugural Max and Marian Farash Community Lecture is part of a collaborative effort at the Colleges amongst the Abbe Center for Jewish Life, the Religious Life Office, the Religious Studies Department, and the Office of the President. The Abbe Center for Jewish Life provides an environment for people of Jewish faith or with Jewish interests to gather and socialize, and to celebrate Shabbat and other Jewish holidays.
Hobart and William Smith Colleges, often in collaboration with local and regional organizations, regularly hosts special programming and invites guest lecturers to campus. In addition, the Colleges have offered numerous lectures by distinguished invited speakers through its President's Forum Series, which was established in the winter of 2000 by President Mark D. Gearan.
