On Monday, November 3, Federation’s Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) and the Latino-Jewish Coalition (LJC), in partnership with the Consulate General of Israel, held a breakfast at Ohr Shalom to showcase Israel’s contributions to the socio-economic impact on the developing world. More than 40 participants had the opportunity engage in a conversation with Mazal Renford, former Director of the Golda Meir Mount Carmel International Training Center in Haifa, Israel, as she shared amazing stories of Israelis making a real difference in the world.
Below are links to the MASHAV website and an article about Mazal Renford from the Jewish Post.
