The AJCC's Milton Collins Day Camp is one of the few, if not the only, camps in Knoxville to offer a middle school program. The TAPs are involved in all regular camp programs with additional activities like fitness training (age appropriate and directed by professional personal trainers), the camp newspaper, and community service. If you or your child has interest in looking at the activities, contact us.
Heska Amuna held their annual meeting on Sunday. Congratulations to out-going chair Rosalie Nagler and new chairman of the board, Scott Hahn.
Sammy Ofer, an Israeli billionaire in the shipping industry died last week. He was the scion of one of the wealthiest families in the world and his story parallels Israel's success of the last century. http://www.jpost.com/NationalNews/Article.aspx?id=223737
Sarah Palin never looked better than she did while wearing a Magen David last week in honor of Jerusalem Day http://www.jpost.com/JewishWorld/JewishNews/Article.aspx?id=223386
Can you think of anything dumber than an argument over which brand of hummus to offer in a college cafeteria? This Week's "Below the Calendar" is an example of another campus effort at Israel BDS....boycott, divestment/delegitimization, and sanctions. This round was won with the help of our counterpart federation in Chicago. If you know of anything like this happening in Knoxville, be sure to alert us. KJA has a Community Relations Committee and an Israel Partnership committee that are knowledgeable in this area and are prepared to deal with such problems. If you are interested in seeing what we are up against, go to http://www.bdsmovement.net/ You can see the Palestinian agenda and also their version of their Chicago chick pea fight.
