The Annual Meeting of the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte will take place on Monday, May 14 at 7 PM in the Sam Lerner Center for Cultural Arts at Shalom Park. Please join us to honor Outgoing President, Larry Schwartz and welcome Incoming President, Alison Lerner.

Following the meeting, please join us for an opportunity to celebrate Israel’s 70th with a special Israel Wine Tasting experience. Wine in Israel has a rich history, dating back thousands of years, with many biblical references to local vineyards. For years, many Israeli vintners created wines from high yielding vineyards, with results that tasted generic and relatively sweet. But the region’s wine industry has seen a major evolution over the last 30 years; today, high-quality bottlings are becoming more prominent on the market. A Mediterranean climate is experienced throughout much of Israel’s five main areas of production, which includes regions of the Galilee, Judean Hills, Samson, Negev, and Shomron. The soil compositions are quite varied throughout Israel, ranging from limestone and basalt to alluvial and clay loam. The varieties that have yielded the best results from Israel’s terroir include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah. These wines have a rich bouquet with impressive concentration and lush texture. We hope you will join us for this Wine Tasting experience.
