Community Initiation at Lodge Magen David, Nov. 21

Join us as Lodge Bezalel and the Atlanta Lodges of HOD welcome new brethren at a community-wide initiation, Thursday, Nov. 21 at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 21, at Lodge Magen David, Congregation Or VeShalom, 1681 N. Druid Hills Rd., NE, Atlanta, GA 30319.

This will be our November OLM. You'll be able to show our new Lodge Bezalel initiates what our brotherhood is all about - and make new friends in Atlanta's Jewish community.

The Magen David Brothers always put out a good spread for Table Lodge, so be sure to register now to make sure they have enough food and beverage.

Two More Voter Registration Dates for Bezalel Project

Lodge Bezalel Brethren are returning to The Renaissance on Peachtree next Monday, Oct. 28, to register voters and help new residents complete change-of-address forms so they can vote in their new hometown. A similar voter registration campaign is set for Nov. 4 at the Jewish Tower. Volunteers can show up at each location at 2:30 p.m. for training. Registration runs from 3 to 5 p.m.

The project is chaired by Bro Paul Flexner. Our goal is to visit senior residences with large Jewish populations. A group headed by Bro Paul with Bros David Weingast and Stan Schnitzer and Stan's wife, Judi, helped 25 residents and employees either complete change-of-address forms or register as new Georgia voters. As word spread among the residents, who include Paul's mother-in-law and Judi's parents, they generated enough interest to warrant a second trip.

Contact Bro Paul to join the project, suggest a registration venue or get more information.

Atlanta’s ‘Super Mario Brothers’ at Zichron Menachem

Worthy Brother Mario Oves, President of HOD’s North America Governing Lodge, and newly-initiated Brother Mario Karpuj, Lodge Bezalel, were in Jerusalem to present a check for $22,000 at the Zichron Menachem campus in Jerusalem.

The money will fund the construction of a hair salon dedicated to helping children with cancer. The salon will provide custom made wigs, along with payot for the religious boys. In the last year alone, they created over 500 custom-made wigs for children and young adults. They style and color the wigs, to create a look as close as possible to their existing hair style.

Lodge Bezalel and HOD in the community

Lodge Bezalel of The Hebrew Order of David International (HOD), a Jewish fraternal organization, recently presented a check to support the K-9 Unit of the Cobb County Police Department. The money was raised through Lodge Bezalel’s participation in the annual Atlanta Kosher BBQ Festival, held in the fall at Brook Run Park, Dunwoody. [Read More]
