Explore the depths of American Jewish history and connect with the stories that shape our times. In a period that has tested our community's resilience, it's important to come together to understand the influences that impact our lives.

Our community stands at a crucial point, considering our identity, beliefs, and sense of security. "Meeting the Moment" is a thoughtful space for engaging conversations, expert perspectives, and finding a way forward. This is an opportunity to address our challenges with insight and collective effort, building bridges of understanding and unity.

Join us for a meaningful exploration of these topics. By participating, you contribute to a dialogue that can lead to positive change. Reserve your place and be part of crafting a hopeful future for our community.
