Russell Robinson recently visited the Southeast (December 1 – 3, 2009) and spoke at a dinner reception hosted by Linda and Abe Schear in their home in Atlanta. Sixty guests attended the Dinner Reception enjoying delicious Israeli food offered by Goodfriend Catering and Alon's Bakery and Market.
All guests were very interested in Russell’s exclusive briefing on the political, environmental, and economic impact of JNF projects in the Negev.
In his speech Russell emphasized and credited the Southeast Region for its consecutive growth over the past several years and mentioned that the main reason for having the JNF 2010 National Conference in Atlanta is the growing potential of the Southeast Region.
The visit was actually the Promo for some JNF National upcoming events in the Southeast Region that will be part of the preparations for the JNF National Conference in Atlanta, October 10–11, 2010.
The first of these upcoming events will be on February 8, 2010, while JNF National Board will have its annual meeting in Buckhead Intercontinental Hotel in Atlanta.
