Through Others' Eyes
Posted in Blog

A delegation of brave young Jewish Israeli and Arab Israeli youngsters finished their three-week stay at Camp Shomira in Liberty, NY. Their stay under the sponsorship of Givat Haviva and supported by the Puffin Foundation ended with a photo exhibition titled Through Others' Eyes at the Puffin Cultural Forum.

The exhibition was a look into each others' homes in Israel where the youngsters learned how similar their family lives were. These brave young teenagers crossed borders and shared each others' diverse but not so different values and learned to listen and respect each other.

The program at Camp Shomira, where they discussed conflict resolution and lived together, was a wonderful awakening for them. They will be using Facebook to help keep in touch once back in Israel and help share their experiences with others.

Exhibit runs August 3-18.

Gallery Hours: 12-4pm Tuesday-Thursday.

Teaneck's Red Oak Tree

Teaneck's Red Oak Tree

The great red oak that has grown for more than 350 years at what is today the intersection of Cedar Lane and Palisade Avenue in Teaneck, NJ will be allowed to die a natural death. Through the efforts of the Puffin Foundation, which provided an undisclosed amount of funding, a semi-circular conservation easement has been established in the area of the tree. The Bergen County Department of Parks will provide maintenance of the tree for the duration of its life.

Senator Loretta Weinberg described Perry Rosenstein and his wife Gladys as "the catalysts who provided the necessary money to establish the easement."

Rosenstein spoke about some of the remarkable events that the great oak has quietly witnessed. "It had been here since the REvolutionary War when George Washington retreated on this route," he said . "It was here during the Civil War when the Emancipation Proclamation gave freedom to African-American slaves and when hundreds of young men and women from Teaneck who went off to fight fascism in WWII."

Tree Rededication May 6, 2011 L-R: Lawyer Martin Sarver, Puffin Foundation Executive Director Gladys Miller-Rosenstein, Puffion Foundation President Perry Rosenstein, Environmentalist Wally Cowan, Teaneck's Mayor Mohammed Hameeduddin, Senator Loretta Weinberg, and Puffin Foundation Vice President Neal Rosenstein.
