Palm Beach Dentist Dr. Mitchell Josephs Honored with Alpert JFS Volunteer Award

Dr. Josephs recognized for his pro bono work with Holocaust Survivors

PALM BEACH, Fla. - June 30, 2020 - PRLog -- Dr. Mitchell Josephs, who has practiced dentistry in Palm Beach for 27 years, was honored with the Alpert Jewish Family Service "Bob Schweitzer Volunteer Award" last night at the Alpert JFS virtual annual meeting. Dr. Josephs was recognized specifically for his work with Holocaust Survivors.

Dr. Josephs provides free dental treatment to Holocaust survivors in our community that are in financial need and need dental work, such as crowns, implants, extractions, dentures, and bone grafts. Since beginning his pro bono work, Dr. Josephs has helped nine survivors, each benefitting from upwards of $10,000 to $20,000 of donated work. He was inspired to give back after learning there are 12,000 Holocaust survivors living in Palm Beach County and 5,000 of them are living below the poverty line.

Josephs said he is also motivated to help the survivors with free dental work due to the recent rise in anti-Semitism and Holocaust deniers. "The needs of these survivors are very high, yet often they don't ask for help because of pride or fear. I decided immediately that if I could help these deserving individuals with the expensive and complicated dental work they desperately need to let them to live their final years with dignity, I was going to do that," Dr. Josephs said.

Dr. Josephs hopes that his work will inspire other dentists to volunteer their services. Dentists interested can contact the Alpert JFS Holocaust Program at 561-684-1991.

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Jul 13, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Counting whales from space pitched as key to saving them

Jul 13, 2020

PORTLAND, Maine — An aquarium and an engineering firm in Massachusetts are partnering on a project to better protect whales by monitoring them from space. New England Aquarium of Boston and Draper of Cambridge say whale conservation needs new, higher-tech solutions to protect whales from extinction. So, the pair is working together using data from sources such as satellites, sonar and radar to keep a closer eye on how many whales are in the ocean. The effort has an easy to understand name for a project involving complex data and surveillance — the aquarium and firm are calling the project...

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

Jul 13, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Jul 13, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Jul 13, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
