Coffee Talk 11-12-12
Coffee Talk was held in the home of Gilda Schwartz on Monday, November 12, 2012, at 9:30 a.m. Yair Cohen, Cincinnati's Israeli Shaliach, was guest speaker. Everyone enjoyed light refreshments in the dining room before the program started. Bobbi Handwerger introduced Yair to the group in the living room. Yair spoke about life in Israel and religious attitudes of Israelis.
Yair Cohen is the community shaliach (emissary) of the Israel
Center of Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, funded by The Jewish
Foundation of Cincinnati. He arrived in Cincinnati in September 2011,
after being trained by the Jewish Agency for Israel, and is primarily
responsible for strengthening the unique and multi-faceted significance
of Israel in the local Cincinnati Jewish community by connecting the
next generation of Jewish people to Israel’s people and homeland through
education and advocacy.
