SOJAC Donations by the Numbers!

By Sharon Silver, Chair

In November, we welcomed 50 attendees with a SOJAC Shabbat with dinner, a special Rhythm & Ruach, and an outstanding speaker, Joan Grangenois-Thomas. Nearly 100 SOJAC Booklets were distributed, as we worshipped together and focused our learning on the connections between Jewish teachings and the work of SOJAC. Here’s a quick view of what we, as a community, accomplished:
