Israeli Board Games & Wine Mixer

Congratulations Julia Grinberg! On Friday, August 14th, 2015 a recipient of the RJD's Tikkun Fellowship presented a night filled with popular Israeli board games, delicious Mediterranean Shabbat dinner, music and giveaways! Guests enjoyed meeting new people in the community and socializing in a beautiful private lounge overlooking the Chicago skyline. Israeli nostalgia was surely the theme of the night! The event was sponsored in partnership with Masa Israel Journey & Genesis Philanthropy Group.
