A fortunate coincidence made from "The Spring of B'nai B'rith Romania (BBR) - a trip outdoor, that has become a tradition, a way of socializing for the BBR's members, part of the initiated programme since the election of eng. Jose Iacobescu as President of the Forum - a good occasion to celebrate The Jerusalem Day in a different way from the classic formula.

We are saying that because "the trip outdoor", at the "Astoria" C.F.R. Complex in Snagov fit in with the celebration of the Jerusalem's reunification, the eternal capital of the Jews around the world. This is something that President Jose Iacobescu also emphasized in his speech of welcoming the guests and thanking the friends from the Jewish Community Center (JCC) in Bucharest, collaborators to this event.
