Federation delegation on leadership mission
July 14, 2017
Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando President Rhonda Forest (from left), board member Lawrence Haber and Executive Director Olga Yorish meet July 5 in Budapest with Taly Shaul, director of Hungary's Joint Distribution Committee, to learn about the Jewish community in Budapest and the work JDC is doing there in partnership with the Jewish Federations of North America. Forest, Haber and Yorish were en route to the Ukraine, then Israel, as part of JFNA's 2017 Leadership Mission. The mission offers top Federation lay and professional leaders the opportunity to travel and work together alongside teams from other North American cities. After three days in the Ukraine, the trio arrived in Israel on Thursday, July 13, and took part in a full day of site visits to projects run by Federation partner agencies.
