When you read below “Tikkun Olam,” it means repair the world, make the world a better place. Keep checking back! Updates are added for new future events/details/pics in this week, PLUS, Updates/Reviews/Pictures of this week’s past events!

– JULY 27 & 29… Goto “Holy City Blues” for details on their cooool Dancing. Tikkun Olam: Blues dancing gets you in-tune with the music’s nuances, so you explore & interpret it in sync with your dance partner. Much more than a 2-pronged tuning fork…when you & your partner are resonating in the same frequency, the world trips the light fantastic…and that’s also true for new and platonic dance partners. The Blues make you happy 🙂

– JULY 28  Presentation on Diverse Synergies with Top SC & Israeli Collaborators, 10am-12noon at SCRA.  (Update, review of the meeting: A secular audience of 80+ diversified players got to see a lot of SC & Israeli home runs…and there are plenty more pitches to swing at! We were able to listen, learn, and network with the who’s who of heavyweights moving mountains & shaking the bushes. Who shakes out will spring-board off of inspirational angels, philanthropists, trailblazers, power brokers, and promoters. The SC & Israel Collaboration adds an impressive boost of urgency for capturing influential genius; empowering skunkworks, mashups, and R&D; and fast tracking entrepreneurial innovation to fruition. The goals are over the top and the talks upfront and behind the scenes included Tikkun Olam: Stem Cells; composites; defense for mass-transportation; aerospace; sustainable water, land, seeds, energy; etc, etc. Don’t go to SC & Israel for oil…go there for brains. The brain-trusts, the muses, the magic, the history…there’s definitely something in the wellsprings worth sustaining.  APPLY NOW <–> the “Chosen Ones” will spearhead the SC-Israeli Delegation; will be the imminent shooting stars; will further brighten the SC & Israeli spotlight; and will share it with the world.  The more than gracious VIP leadership included Jonathan Zucker and Anita Zucker of InterTech; Tom Glaser of American-Israel Chamber of Commerce SE Region; Bill Mahoney of SCRA; Ray Greenberg’s associates from MUSC; Gal Nir of Scopus; Clemson; Charleston’s Jewish Federation (see more Jewish secular outreach); and many others…Mazol Tov.
