ISRAEL CORNER •
‫פינת ישראל‬
ISRAEL FAIR: A SMASHING SUCCESS
They started coming in even before the official noon-time opening. And they kept coming all day long, so that, before the doors closed,
nearly 1,500 people attended. Some were LSS members, most were not. Some men wore kippot, many did not. English and Ivrit sounds
filled the ballroom. All were united by the desire to purchase something from the Israeli vendors from the South of Israel to help them with
their parnassah.
Not only did the Israel Fair help the vendors, but hundreds of people who had never before set foot in our shul did so and got to know us in
a very positive way. Many took brochures about the activities of the shul and hopefully they will come back to hear a lecture, see a movie or
attend a service.
How does an event like this happen with less than two weeks’ notice? Through a lot of hard work by many dedicated individuals. While
many people helped in planning, organizing and staging the event, special thanks go to: Ann Crane, Lloyd Epstein, Izzi Fridman (who spearheaded the event), Pearl Glassberg, Bill Greenbaum, Rachel Neumark Herlands, Ben Keil, Ellen Lipkis, Chuck Pollack, Glenn Richter, Gretchen
& Ben Schmaltz, Nathan Vogel and Bernie Zweig. Special thanks to our super volunteer, Rabbi Shaul Robinson who handed out flyers in
front of Zabar’s and reached out to his rabbinical colleagues to promote the Fair to their congregants.
And, of course, a huge thank you to the entire LSS kehila that showed up in force to the event, emailed and called their friends and posted
on their Facebook pages. The vendors were very grateful not just for the purchases made but also by the many kind words of encouragement and support that they received from us the entire day. We can truly say that we fulfilled the mitzvah of Kol Yisrael arevim zeh bazeh or
zeh le zeh, all Jews are responsible for one another.
Would you like to work on future events of the LSS Israel Committee? Please contact Ann Crane [email protected] All friends of
Israel are welcome, especially young professionals with social media skills.
ISRAEL HERE WE COME
The LSS mission to Israel is tentatively planned for Sun. November 23rd through Thurs November 27th (Thanksgiving Day) with extensions for additional
days of traveling and volunteer work. Exciting details to follow next week.
The Lea Segre Tomchei Shabbos Fund discreetly distributes thousands of dollars to our own community members to
defray the costs of Shabbat and Yom Tov meals and clothing. Help yourself and your neighbors by sending your contributions, earmarked for LSTSF to the LSS office. If you are aware of any LSS community member (including yourself)
who could benefit from a Shabbat meal, please let us know by contacting the LSS office or by confidential email to
