When it comes to the vibrant Orange County Jewish community, there are endless events held throughout the year. I do not know why but many of them have been sent to me in various forms of communications over the past day or two. This includes snail mail (that means the traditional post office) email as well as facebook postings and other means of communication.
Here is a list and links to some of those events, in no particular order.
AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee is holding its 2011 membership dinner on Sunday, March 13th. The dinner will feature the Reverend Dr. DeeDee M. Coleman, a pastor at the Russell Street Missionary Baptist Church with special remarks given by AIPAC’s Western States Director, Elliott Brandt.
Israeli General Doron Almog is a popular figure these days. We know this because he is being honored in Orange County by two different Jewish groups. What made it even more ironic is that the postcards for the two different events honoring Almog arrived at in my mailbox on the same day.
The first event is slated for Sunday March 6th at Congregation Beth Meir Hacohen-Chabad in Yorba Linda. ” A Morning with Major General Doron Almog” an Israeli Hero is being presented in conjunction with the Jewish National Fund.
General Almog returns to the OC for an event that has been rescheduled for June 12 at the St. Regis Hotel in Monarch Beach. It is the Jewish National Fund’s Tree of Life Gala. Proceeds from the event will benefit Aleh Negev, a residential facility for the most severely disabled.
Let us not forget about the largest annual community event in Orange County. It’s not until May but certainly worth mentioning now as a save the date note. The 2011 Israeli Expo, which traditional draws thousands of visitors. This year’s Expo will happen on Sunday, May 22nd. Stay tuned for more information or click on the link above.
