Get Involved

When an issue rises to a certain threshold, such as a threat to all Jews no matter what they believe, who they vote for, or how they practice, then “The Community” needs to get together and address it. More importantly, the community needs an infrastructure in place to readily do so, especially in the event of time-sensitive matters.
