Rabbi Shmuel Bowman, Executive Director of Operation LifeShield, from Efrat, Israel, will speak in the Shoals on Monday evening, July 30th at 7:00 pm in the Gold Record Room at SunTrust Bank in downtown Florence.
An Orthodox Jewish Priest and a Torah Scribe, Rabbi Bowman is regarded as an expert in the field of passive defense and humanitarian relief. In addition to providing insight on current events in Israel and a security briefing regarding his nation’s defense, the Rabbi will share stories of Israel’s unsung heroes.
Operation LifeShield is a non-profit organization providing bomb shelters for the people of Israel. Rabbi Bowman has partnered locally with Jim and Anne Bevis of CSR Ministries to build a bomb shelter as a legacy gift from North Alabama and the Tennessee Valley.
The evening program is free, and the public is invited to attend. However, space is limited. Please, plan to enter through the door on the parking lot side, midway down the SunTrust Bank building, or through the Gold Record Room door on the corner of Alabama and Court streets.
