JNH Israel Week Celebration
May 16, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join JGS Lifecare in a weeklong community celebration of Israel in honor of Israel Independence Day. At the Leavitt Family Jewish Home, “Space Shuttle Columbia: Mission of Hope” will be presented, featuring the story of Col. Ilan Ramon, a fighter pilot and son of Holocaust survivors who became the first astronaut from Israel. Although the seven astronauts of Columbia tragically perished on February 1, 2003, this is a remarkable story of hope, friendship across cultures and an enduring faith that emerged. This event is free and open to the public to attend.
