Volunteers For Israel Meeting
The Philadelphia Region of Volunteers for Israel (VFI) will host its quarterly meeting on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 17, 2013, from 7-9 pm at the Gratz College Library in Melrose Park, PA.
The featured speaker will be Lauren Yoked, Executive Director of American Friends of Leket Israel, Israel's National Food Bank. She will talk about her experience with Leket Israel and the important work they do to help feed Israel's needy population.
Lauren grew up on a 65-acre farm in rural Monmouth County, NJ, where her family was active in gleaning projects through local food banks. Her concern for the environment and strong convictions about ending hunger led to her role with Leket Israel. Lauren has a Master's Degree in Israeli Politics and Society from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
The public is invited to meet Lauren Yoked and VFI alumni, and to learn about VFI's unique program, which enables volunteers 17 and older to work on IDF logistics bases in Israel.
Refreshments will be served.
