Hadassah to hear about firefighters’ Israel trip

Members of Firefighters Without Borders, the seven-man Arizona delegation that traveled to Israel in October, will discuss their trip at Hadassah Southern Arizona’s lunch program on Sunday, Jan. 5.

The local firefighters conferred with Israeli firefighters and rescue workers to learn firsthand how to respond to mass casualties. Their trip included visits to fire stations in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv and more rural areas. They also toured Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust memorial, and planted trees on Mount Carmel, the scene of a deadly 2010 forest fire.

The event, which is open to all, will be held at noon at McMahon’s Restaurant, 2959 N. Swan Road. The cost of the luncheon is $18. RSVP by Dec. 31; checks should be payable to Hadassah and mailed to Marlene Zoloto, 10335 N. Fair Desert Drive, Oro Valley, AZ 85737. For more information, call 219-6910.
