Upcoming Community Events 
By Mona Lieberman, Chair of the Jewish Council of Lake Norman:
It is hard to put into words the enormity of the impact the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte has had, and continues to have with us, the Jewish Council of Lake Norman.  Without the Federation, we could not bring so many wonderful events to the Lake:  Films at the Lake, Jewish Deli Day, Apple-Picking, Dan Nichols, the Shabbatones, and Tzofim Caravan - just to name a few!  Not only is the Federation our support system but it is a tremendous resource for all aspects of Jewish life.
