Join B'nai B'rith Omaha members at the next Breadbreakers Luncheon on February 27.
Many of you may not know it, but Omaha played a small, but significant role in helping Jews get out of the Soviet Union in the late 1980’s, where they were often trapped.
B'nai B'rith, the Jewish Federation and many Omahans opened their hearts and frequently their pocketbooks to help settle immigrants from the Soviet Union right here in the river city.
Recently, Omaha celebrated the 25th anniversary of the first arrival of Soviet Jews. We helped to make history, and Bob Goldberg, the Director of Strategic Initiatives from the Jewish Federation staff, will recount some of the proud details in the story of how we helped save and improve the lives of many Russians.
To help him tell the story, Russians Anna Yuz-Mosenkis and Marina Sadofsky will join him. We may also have a special surprise guest to recount some of the inside details of all these events.
So join us for lunch, meet someone new, make a new friend and enjoy a very, very proud moment in world history that unfolded right here in Omaha.
Free program: an optional kosher lunch is available for $11.

Members of B'nai B'rith Denver came together to support the community on February 17 for the Peanut Butter Plan. Guests made PBJ's and passed them out to people in need in the downtown Denver area.
THE DONATIONS: Each Peanut Butter Plan participant donated one jar of Peanut Butter and one jar of Jelly, plus two or more loafs of bread.
THE MISSION: After the PBJ's were made (at about 2:00), members formed carpools to the Denver Rescue Mission neighborhood to hand out the sandwiches. After giving food to many of the people attendees found on the streets and in the parks, they donated left over food to Samaritan House and other agencies in need.
The program was co-sponsored by AJC, B'nai Brith Denver, Moishe House and JConnect.
