We are happy to share with you the news that our daughter-in-law, Rachael, has initiated a project to help address the serious problem of wasted food in this country and elsewhere. (Did you know that something like 40% of the food we produce goes to waste?) So Rachael has created a web site called Eat or Toss.com with the intent of helping people to know what's safe to consume and when as food ages. Please check out the site!
Zachor - The Holocaust Memory Project
Zachor: The Holocaust Memory Project's focus is to create a photographic traveling exhibit available to organizations and institutions with an interest in exploring the history of the Holocaust and transforming the future by combating hatred and prejudice wherever it may arise.
As Jewish photographers, we are creating a visual representation of those whose history will not survive many generations, as a way of giving back to the Jewish Community. We believe that it is important to lay this down for the future to be shared with coming generations and that these portraits can be a powerful instrument to carry yesterday to tomorrow.
Zachor: The Holocaust Memory Project, is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
The project is staffed 100% by volunteers.
Dance Fitness With Penny
Hi, I'm sending this to my Israeli Dance email lists. You may not know me as a Fitness person but I am! I am passionate about helping others improve their vitality and incorporate fitness into their life. CBG is an awesome organization and I am honored that they asked me to develop and teach this class. We generally teach from a dance studio in Highland Park (Chicago suburbs) but in this time of zoom classes, we can have participants from anywhere. If you are interested, great, and if not, no issue at all!!!
If I can answer any question, just ask. See below for
registration. There will be no charge for
the month of February, and of course no obligation whatsoever.
Have an excellent day!
