On Sunday morning, August 13th, at 10:30 a.m., in a joint program, Kol Emeth's Men's Club and Sisterhood are hosting Author/Attorney/Boxer Kenneth Green's presentation of his book, "I'M FROM DIVISION STREET." Mr. Green, who was inducted into the California Boxing Hall of Fame, will be sharing his stories about rising from #186 out of #187 graduates from Roosevelt High School facing poverty, academic problems and anti-Semitism to a prominent professional and personal success. Ken's book also vividly describes the Humboldt Park neighborhood when he was growing up and profiles famous Jewish people who had their roots there. He will be bringing and personally signing copies of his book to sell. Light refreshments will be served following the presentation. Please RSVP to Jennifer Blitz at jblitz@dunnweb.us or call her at 773-769-3315.
