Sarasota News Leader April 12, 2013 Page 101 STUDENT SPEAKERS TO MARK ISRAEL INDEPENDENCE DAY The Congregation for Humanistic Judaism (CHJ) will celebrate Israel Independence Day with student speakers Haven Miller, Jesse Schein and Janae Newmark during a program at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 19. The event is free and open to the public. "Following a rigorous selection process," a news release says, these students were named recipients of a trip to Israel through the Bob Malkin Young Ambassadors Teen Leadership Mission program. Young Ambassadors attend at least five pre-mission training sessions to bond and to learn about Israel's history and culture, the release notes. Once back in Sarasota, they are expected to become community leaders and volunteers and share their experiences in Israel, the release adds. CHJ meets at Unity, located at 3023 Proctor Road in Sarasota.
