Our kickoff of all kickoffs

In the fall of 2018, we were proud to put on the first kickoff event was an evening that started with deliciously authentic Israeli food, refreshments and desserts catered by Yafo Kitchen of Charlotte, NC. Following the reception, we premiered the movie, In Search of Israeli Cuisine, a film by Roger Sherman featuring Chef Michael Solomonov which takes you deep into Israel to discover the country and its people through the most common bond all cultures share, food.
