The B'nai B'rith Henry Monsky Lodge of Omaha held a "Breadbreakers" lunch program on January 9, 2013, which featured a joint session with AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
For more than 61 years, the weekly B'nai B'rith Breadbreakers program has highlighted what chairman Gary Javitch calls "the prominent and preeminent, the interesting and the influential" from across the City and occasionally, from around the United States.
The advantage of the interactive mini-press conference format is that the members can ask our presenters - which have included governors, top business leaders and even a world class specialist on Alzheimer's - any question.
This LAST week's program included Eric Axel, AIPAC's political director of the Southwest, who traveled from Houston to Omaha to discuss the challenges of educating over 100 new senators and congressmen on the important issues that confront America and to better strengthen the American-Israel relationship.
On this occasion, the lunch group included two of B'nai B'rith Omaha's longest serving members: George Shafer, a never-miss weekly attendee, who turns 95 on January 20, and Sam Epstein, who is 97.
