Our Lions of Judah sponsored and participated in a JFCS Café Europa luncheon for Holocaust Survivors June 22 at Lions Gate. This has become an annual Lions event and one of the more meaningful programs of the year. Lions and Survivors alike enjoyed lunch, conversation, and dancing with each other during a truly amazing and touching afternoon.
