Shalom in Israel: An Inside Look at the War Against Hamas with Benjy Maor (Munitz)
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2023
SOCIAL HALL and ZOOM, click here.
Benjy Maor grew up in the Los Angeles area and made aliyah (moved to Israel) in the 1980s. There, he served in leadership positions including Director of Development at Beit Issie Shapiro and Director of Resource Development at Tzad Kadima (Steps Forward), providing support to children and adults who suffered brain damage.
Benjy is also deeply knowledgeable about the political and military situation in Israel and recently helped our congregants to understand the democracy protests. He is bringing his insight and knowledge so we can better understand the difficult situation in Israel.
Please RSVP to Bob Salfi at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we know how many people to expect. A suggested donation of $5 at the door will be appreciated to help cover the cost of the breakfast.
Open to our entire congregation. Sponsored by TAE Brotherhood.
