Thanks so much for your support, everyone, and I look forward to a fruitful new secular year! Let’s get into some holidays and community service.
In mid to late January we have one secular and one religious holiday crop up in our midst–MLK Weekend goes from Jan 13-15 and Tu B’Shevat occurs between Jan 30 and 31. Check out ways to get involved with the local community! Note: some events may be sold out.
