Each of the presentations they have planned have piqued our interest. I’m sure the words of Torah they share with our community will be eye-opening, and greatly enhance our shul’s summer programming.

We sincerely appreciate the Orthodox Union’s multifaceted work on behalf of our congregation, as well as Jewish communities across the United States and around the world.”
