ALL-TUCSON DINNER AT CBS FOR VISITING SENIOR ISRAELI FIRST RESPONDERS

October 22, 2015 at 5.30 pm at Congregation Bet Shalom. $30 a person.

Register at www.cbsaz.org or call CBS at 520.577.1171. Adults only.

The Greater Tucson Fire Foundation (GTFF), in partnership with the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona, Weintraub Israel Center and the Jewish Community Foundation, is hosting a 10-day visit to Tucson for four senior representatives from Israeli emergency response agencies, October 18-29, 2015. This visit is a coordinated follow-up to the 2013 visit to Israel by seven Tucson area firefighters that studied Israeli best practices in response to mass casualty and terrorism events. That visit resulted in significant changes in multi-agency terrorism awareness and training, regional cooperation in training and response procedures, as well as emergency medical response triage protocols.

 

KOSHER WINE TASTING AT CATAVINOS, SEPTEMBER 19, 2015

 
Enjoy fine kosher wines at CataVinos, 3063 North Alvernon Way, Tucson, September 19, 2015 from 8:00p onward. The cost is $25.00 a person. Call CBS at 520.577.1171 to register.
 

In a private, intimate setting at CataVinos, the event will feature tastings of fine kosher wines from around the world. 


Rosa Cohen, CBS president, explains that there are now many international-award-winning kosher wines from the USA, Israel, Europe, South America as well as other regions of the globe.

 

“If you think that kosher wines are suitable only for Passover seders and Shabbat rituals, then you’ll be surprised and delighted by these kosher wines,” says Cohen.


“These fine wines can not only be served during Passover seders, but these reds and whites are perfect for dinners  and can be enjoyed throughout the year,” she adds.


“We are trying something different this year, holding the event at a more intimate venue, and our focus will be on the wines.” CataVinos is Tucson’s award-winning, full service wine shop and tasting room.


The fundraiser is open to the public. Proceeds benefit Congregation Bet Shalom. Space is limited. Tasters should register now.
