B’nai B’rith Connect: Young Professional Leader Events at the Local, National and International Levels
By Katherine Dolgenos
Connect leaders also visited the residence of the Consul General of Japan in New York, Kanji Yamanouchi, for a reception honoring the mayor of Tsuruga City, Takanobu Fuchikami. Tsuruga is known for welcoming Jewish refugees fleeing Europe during World War II. Refugees passed through the port city on their way to other destinations, such as Shanghai.
This December, B’nai B’rith Connect Denver will hold its second annual Jewbilee bash on Christmas Eve. Last year’s event, which featured a photo booth and two DJs, drew 350 guests. The Jewbilee bash aims to encourage young professionals to become involved in B’nai B’rith.
