Fallen Heroes Day: May 2, 2014, 1:00 p.m.
Maryland’s police officers and firefighters who died in the line of duty, during the past year, will be honored at the 29th annual Fallen Heroes Day Ceremony–the only statewide ceremony in the nation that brings together all segments of the public safety community. The annual observance at DulaneyValleyMemorialGardens salutes police and correctional officers, firefighters, emergency medical and rescue personnel who risk their lives to protect the citizens of Maryland and honors those who have died. In addition to state and local officials, and families of those being honored, more than 1,000 people are expected to attend the ceremony which opens with a parade of color guard units and concludes with a wreath laying, taps, and a flyover.
Fallen Heroes Day will be held Friday, May 2, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. DulaneyValleyMemorialGardens is located at 200 East Padonia Road — one mile east of York Road, in Timonium, Maryland. The observance is free and open to the public. For more information: 410-666-0490 or www.dulaneyvalley.com.

Oakland Mills Meeting House
Columbia Jewish Congregation member Isaac Shafran, born in Cuba, will share his knowledge of the history of Cuban Jewry, as well as the present situation of the Jewish community in Cuba.
The Jewish population was at its peak just before the Cuban Revolution in 1959 but since then has dwindled to a tenth of what it was. There has been no Rabbi on the island for the past few years.
Mr. Shafran and his family visited Cuba in 2012, 52 years after he moved to the US. He will share his experiences and observations as the result of meeting with Jewish community leaders and visiting several synagogues.
