The Aliyah Experience – Our OLM Jan. 21

What’s it like to make Aliyah? Is moving to Israel just like moving to any other country? Get a personal perspective in a conversation with Bro Rabbi Mario Karpuj as he and Rabbi Analia go through the process of picking up stakes and moving internationally – again. Sign up here so our chefs, Yossi and Mitch, have enough to feed you. Meeting at Congregation Or Hadash, 7640 Trowbridge Road, Sandy Springs. Schmooze at 7 p.m., meeting at 7:30. If you have a vetted prospective member, invite him for dinner – but let us know he’s coming so there’s food. Business casual attire is required.

Celebrate Your Youth
A Dance Party for the Generations 60s...90s
Bring your friends to Lodge Bezalel's 60s/70s/80s/90s Dance Party, Jan. 25 at the East Hampton Clubhouse, 2055 Kinsmon Drive, Marietta, GA 30062. Festivities start at 7 p.m. Revel in your glory days - with apologies to The Boss.

We'll supply the food - heavy hors d' ouevres - soft drinks, bar setups and the DJ for $20 per person. Bring your own adult beverages and your dancing shoes. Everyone is highly encouraged to dress from their high schools days, especially if those letter sweaters and cheerleader outfits still fit.

Registration and online payment are now open through our website, Facebook page and Scribe's announcements. Just click here and turn up your record player...your cassette player...your CD player...your MP3 to get ready.

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]
