    Even with schools canceled and the impediment of icy roads, a crowd of more than 30 people attended a community briefing by Jewish Federation president and CEO, Gordon Hecker, about the current situation in France. The breakfast event took place Feb. 17, a week after Gordon's return from a Jewish Federation of North America (JFNA) solidarity mission to France. Gordon showed slides from his trip and relayed the current facts on the ground and the many conversations he had in France.

    Think of a website like Expedia or Hotels.com, but instead of using it to find vacation deals you use it to connect kids to Jewish camps.
