Coffee Talk 12-10-12

The December meeting of Coffee Talk was held on Monday morning, December 10, 2012 at 9:30 am at the home of Marcie Bachrach.  Everyone enjoyed light refreshments in the kitchen before the program started.  Tobe Snow, Coffee Talk Chair and Programing Vice President of Hadassah, welcomed everyone and wished us all a Happy Hanukkah.  Marcie brought out a beautiful Hanukkah menorah that looked like the Western Wall in Jerusalem and lit 3 candles (plus the shamash) as everyone sang the blessings.  Then Marcie gave us an update on Camp Young Judaea, followed by a wonderful video and a PowerPoint presentation by the CYJ Midwest director, Noah Gallagher.  Finally, Nina Paul discussed the long lasting partnership between Hadassah and Jewish National Fund. She talked at length about the JNF's newest projects: to develop the Negev, build more housing near Beersheva, and replant trees in areas hit by forest fires.
