We know that the continuation of these threats across the country to JCCs and other Jewish institutions is very disheartening. Yet, these incidents also demonstrate both the relevance and importance of the community in our JCCs. At times like these the importance of coming together as a community is critical. We hope that you will join us at our many upcoming programs and events to continue to show your support for the work we do.’.
