Chair, 2017 BOND Book Author Event

I would like you to save the dates Tuesday and Wednesday, August 22 and 23 for our Annual Book Author Events.  We will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary as BOND and want our event to reflect all the hard work as BOND.  We want this anniversary event to establish ourselves as a vital part of the community!

With your help we can exceed our expectations with a larger than ever turnout.  Please mark the date on your calendar now and plan to attend with your spouse, friends or relatives.  We welcome everyone to an event that will focus on outstanding authors and a lovely dinner and luncheon.

We will be at Beth El synagogue on Tuesday evening and Oak Ridge Community Club Wednesday.  Our committee is already working hard to make this a very special year and, of course, as our major fundraiser we will be providing even more scholarships to deserving individuals in the Twin Cities.

Please contact me at 612-251-1505 anytime if you want to help out for the event or have questions.  Stay warm!

B'YaChad Project - St. Paul

By Rhoda Redleaf

Our BOND B’YaChad Project with Jewish Family Service of St. Paul distributed over 130 beautiful gift packages to clients of JFS over the holidays. 

Very special thanks to Elaine Alper, who has kept us supplied with beautiful packaging materials and taught us all in the art of bow making and artistic design in gift wrapping.

Thank you to all the volunteers who have helped with donating wrapping, shopping and all the main details of this greatly appreciated BOND project in St. Paul.  We have received many glowing thank you notes and comments from clients and case workers alike, as well JFS Board members and Ted Flaum, Executive Director.  Volunteers are always welcome to join us.

Rhoda Redleaf has designed and managed many of BOND's community service, education, fundraising and scholarship news as well as held organizational leadership since BOND was established as an independent nonprofit 10 years ago and earlier when BOND work was integrated with Brandeis University.

Martin Luther - Art and the Reformation


By Saralee Mogilner

On Thursday, December 7, BOND members had the rare opportunity to visit the Minneapolis Institute of Art for a guided tour of “Martin Luther:  Art and the Reformation.” 

Docent Pam Friedland immersed us in a dramatic story of a critical time of art in the service of spiritual and early power.

Rarely seen masterpieces from the heart of Germany including extraordinary paintings, monumental sculpture, embroideries and objects wrought in silver and gold were the essence of an exhibition that appeared solely at MIA and will certainly become of one of its most successful in its storied history!
