Foundation Board Meeting

After an informative presentation on Jewish community security issues by Bob Lane, the Federation’s VP of Jewish Community Relations, Foundation Board members asked him to check out vulnerabilities at our local Jewish cemeteries, and prepare recommendations on how to protect against vandalism.
