Brunch & Discussion with Consul General of Israel
Sunday, November 3 at 9:30 am
Thanks to the Consul General of Israel to the Mid-Atlantic Region, Mr. Yaron Sideman, Brotherhood members, their guests, and all congregants will hear about all things concerning us pertaining to Israel, its friends and allies, and, unhappily, its foes.Especially at this moment fraught with hope and peril, we urge your attendance at this Sunday morning brunch on November 3, beginning at 9:30 am at MLRT.I am confident that the Consul General’s remarks, together with our questions and his answers, will combine for a thought-provoking event.
The Consul General will give his overview of Middle East events, including Syria and Iran. Followed by a Q and A session. The brunch is open to all congregants and their guests. Donations, at the door, are appreciated.
Mr. Sideman is a graduate of the Israel National Defense College. He served in his most recent position at the Ministry of Foreign Aﬀairs as Director of Congressional Aﬀairs at the North America Division, where he was responsible for supervising and directing Israel's relations to the U.S Congress. Prior to those posts, Mr. Sideman served as Head of the North American desk at the Diaspora and Interreligious Aﬀairs Bureau where he was, among other responsibilities, a liaison of the Foreign Ministry to many American Jewish organizations. Mr. Sideman holds a Master's Degree in Political Science from Haifa University and a B.A. Degree in Psychology and Philosophy from Tel Aviv University.

Brotherhood’s opportunity for connection with the larger community and for performing mitzvah will take place on Sunday, November 17.Brotherhood and all other MLRT congregants can join with the Men’s Club of Beth David Congregation in their annual cleanup of the Gladwyne Jewish Cemetery.The cleanup commences at 12:30 pm, giving our children the opportunity to take up a rake and the heartier among us to take up our pruning shears to clear debris.(Last year’s event proved to be especially meaningful as we learned that one of the participant’s relatives was buried in the cemetery.)Rakes and pruning shears: what better way to make a difference.
