What’s the latest news from Israel? Find out at a public briefing from David Baker, senior foreign press coordinator of the office of the prime minister of Israel, to be held at 3 p.m. on October 27th at Vi at Aventura, 19333 West Country Club Drive.
Baker’s visit is part of a U.S. tour sponsored by Bnai Zion Foundation, says Eileen Glastein, the Foundation’s director of the southeast region.
“David Baker is a long-time friend of Bnai Zion,” she says. “He’s a compelling and educational speaker, and will bring us up to date on the press information coming out of Israel.”
The event is part of Vi at Aventura’s Guest Lecture Series, says Community Relations Manager Marjorie Aloni. “As part of our ongoing activities,” she says, “we offer our residents and members of the community at large an opportunity to hear outstanding guest lectures on current event topics. Rabbi Sy Friedman, a resident of Vi at Aventura, will be the MC for this event.”
Bnai Zion, in existence for over a century, does humanitarian work in Israel, where it currently supports five projects.
Vi at Aventura, formerly Classic Residence by Hyatt, is a luxury continuing life-care community.
Baker will also be speaking at three other events sponsored by Bnai Zion in the area, Glastein says.
On October 26th he’ll speak at the Broken Sound Men’s Club in Boca Raton, and also at an America-Israel Chamber of Commerce event at Higer Lichter & Givner in Aventura.
After speaking at Vi Living on the afternoon of October 27th, he will address Allies for Ahava, a group of young professionals dedicated to raising funds for Ahava Village for Children and Youth, one of Bnai Zion’s projects.
