Dear Friends:
 
Ron Bernstein was born in New York City, but he moved to Israel more than thirty years ago to become one of the early settlers of Kibbutz Yahel.  Yahel lies about sixty miles south of the Dead Sea, right on the Jordanian border.  Soon, Ron became proficient in the cultivation of citrus fruit and dates, plus he learned how to manage the sizeable dairy herd that now produces more milk per cow than any other herd in the country. Along the way, he and his wife have raised three children, including an adopted oriental girl.

Right now, Ron has moved to Austin, Texas for a couple of years to represent the Jewish National Fund.  JNF was established over a hundred years ago to help develop the land of Israel.  If you have ever bought a tree or had one dedicated in our honor, the tree was planted by JNF.  Vast swaths of the Judean landscape have been forested by JNF, providing cleaner air for the country, minimizing soil erosion, offering Israelis and others healthy and enjoyable places to hike and picnic and beautifying the countryside.  In addition, JNF has invested in the building of schools, hospitals, public utilities and all sorts of other projects.  Much of the modern State of Israel exists in its present form because of JNF.
 
Ron will be our guest speaker on Friday evening at services, January 20, 2012.  I hope you will join us to learn more about a part of modern Jewish life that is especially important to all of us today.  This is one of the most constructive and positive features of Israel, something with which all of us need to be familiar.
 
During the Spring, our Combined Jewish Appeal will be offering you the opportunity to do the mitzvah of supporting Israel as well as all sorts of Jewish services in Corpus Christi.  The kick-off dinner will be held on February 2 at the Corpus Christi Country Club, at which time Elliot Chodoff will speak. Please consider attending the dinner and then making your annual pledge to the CJA; it's really the best way to ensure the Jewish future around the world.
 
Shalom,
Kenneth D. Roseman
