Introduction of guest speaker -Dave Friedman.
Joshua Berookhim and Levy Shaked are two outstanding young Jewish teenagers who are involved in raising money to get young people, and people of any ages, involved in community service.  
Jonah Danish, the prospective CEO of of a non-profit organization that they call "Non Profit of Tomorrow" for which they plan to apply for 501c3 tax exempt status.  Unfortunately, Jonah was unable to attend the meeting due to family emergency and commissioned Levy and Josh, 2 prospective members of the Board, to prepare a presentation to our club. 
According to Joshua, this effort began in June of this year and its two goals are to raise money to help community service and to get teenage students involved in community service.  They are trying to find ways fir fundraising by teens and people of any age, getting sponsors, developing social media pages, and students to apply for grants.
Levy is asking GVN Rotary to hold a fundraising event for this purpose and also to get other rotary clubs and other individuals involved in spreading their message.
They were encouraged to speak to other rotary clubs and share their ideas and plans for their upcoming foundation.
