The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee (JFSM) is presenting a 15-month celebration of the 65th anniversary of the state of Israel, beginning in November. The organization’s executive director, Howard Tevlowitz, said that JFSM aims “to highlight the educational, cultural, technological and medical contributions that Israel and her people have made to our world in the last 65 years. These events will provide opportunities for people in Sarasota and Manatee counties to join together and demonstrate their solidarity with Israel. It’s also an excellent opportunity to strengthen our relationships with the community at large.”
The Israel Defense Forces Quartet will perform at the kick-off event on November 11, 2pm, in the Beatrice Friedman Theater. The event is free; seating is limited. Brigitte Gabriel, a leading expert on global Islamic terrorism, returns to Sarasota on December 12. Gabriel lectures nationally and internationally about terrorism and current affairs and is the author of two New York Times bestselling books, Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America and They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It.
Additional events are scheduled throughout 2013 and will be announced in future issues of Natural Awakenings.
