Shaare Emeth Honors Rubins...With Asian Flair

  • 11 photos
  • More than 240 people attended Shaare Emeth’s Fall Fundraiser at the Frontenac Hilton honoring Ron and Pam Rubin with the Harris Frank Community Service Award. During the cocktail hour, the Farshid Soltanshai band played music and samples of Republic Tea were handed out. The dining room was decorated with an Asian theme. Beautiful Japanese lanterns hung from above, with bonsai center pieces, and flowers in water with lights illuminating them. While everyone was coming into the room and settling in, the band played Japanese drums. There was a table of Rubbinites who are the alumni of the “The Rubin Israel Experience”. A fellow “Rubbinite” spoke about how thankful he was to have an opportunity to visit Israel. Later, Rabbi Goldstein introduced two students from Shaare Emeth Youth and Religious school who spoke about how meaningful Shaare Emeth is to them. After the speeches, acrobats and a contortionist entertained.

Shaare Emeth in Israel

  • 33 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • 45 people on the Shaare Emeth Israel Trip spent a morning with our Partnership 2000 city - Yokneam-Meggido on July 23, 2008. Our guide was happy to take us there, as it is his home. We worked with Ethiopian youth in three projects. We heard the story of departure from Ethiopia from Rabbi Yefet Alamo, a Conservative Rabbi. And finally, we were treated to a performance by the Ethiopian Dancers of THESA (means "hope" in Amharic). The morning was rewarding and we were able to see the difference our Federation dollars make to the Youth at Risk program in Yokneam.
