David Goodtree Speaks to about the Importance of Israeli Innovation and Entrepeneurship to the Massachusetts Economy
David Goodtree lectures

     On Thursday evening, April 7th, our Temple hosted David Goodtree, a member of  CJP
Israel Advocacy Executive Committee  and a member of the New England Board of
Directors of JNF. He spoke about the Massachusetts-Israel Economic Relationship and reported on a study and research commissioned by CJP and Stax, Inc. to quantify the
impact of Israeli innovation on the Massachusetts economy. Using a power-point
presentation, he provided statistics showing how more than 100 life sciences and
technology businesses in the Commonwealth are based on Israeli innovation.   He also reported on Governor Patrick's recent trade mission to Israel.  Mr. Goodtreee was a 
member of the team which accompanied the Governor.  Everyone who attended was impressed at how significant a role Israeli-based businesses and innovative technologies plays within the Massachusetts economy.   There was clear agreement, which was
supported by the studies conducted by CJP, that marketing this aspect of Israel is a
successful approach toward developing positive attitudes toward Israel, by both Jews
and non-Jews. 
     The event was co-sponsored by Temple Beth David, Westwood, and Temple Adath
Sharon, Sharon. Besides members of Temple Shaare Tefilah, the event was attended by members of the other temples, as well as members of the community.
     Following the presentation, the audience enthusiastically participated in a question
and answer session. Refreshments were served and it was an opportunity to continuing
the discussion.
