Today is Yom Hashoa. Today we remember the 6 million lost, the opportunities lost, the futures lost. Our ask from you today is to read a story, Google a name, watch a movie. Do not let the day pass without feeling the magnitude of what we lost. Never forget.

Any good adult Halloween party tomorrow? Thanks 🙏

Hi! For all who I have not met, I am thrilled to be on this page with you for both personal and professional reasons. My husband Steve Zuckerman was YAD Chair a few years back ;) while I was CRC UJFT Chair. Now I have switched sides of the table from lay leader to staff and serve as your Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC)Director. The "your" is intentional since I feel privileged and honored to get to work for all of you as members of our unique and special Jewish community. I am thrilled YAD is partnering with JCRC for this WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 @7:30PM event you will not want to miss: YOUR VOTE IS YOUR VOICE with Eitan Hersh. Check it out and #1 VOTE AND #2 hear how we can go from news consumer sitting on the couch to social and political action change-maker! I look fwd to ZOOMING with all of you on Sept 30.
Hello everyone 🙂 two days ago over zoom Phil showed how to grill like we do it in Israel so who ever want to try something new for 4th of July can go ahead and give it a try (or any other day!) It was fun and interesting and we all learned new things, I know not everyone could make it so here you go, here is the recording from the live Israeli grilling cooking class 🙂 Thank you for anyone who could show-up and took place in the class and we are looking foreword to the next one. Enjoy it!! and Shabat Shalom 🥰
I’ve aged out of YAD, but I really enjoyed today’s shakshuka cooking lesson. Tastes great.
