I am excited to see the URJ Communities Initiative develop into a powerful resource for our synagogues and a mechanism for facilitating collaboration and communication between organizations. So SoCal includes synagogues in San Diego, Orange County and surrounding areas. We welcome participation of our local lay leaders together with our clergy in workshops, discussions, webinars and community-wide programs as we work together to strengthen our congregations, engage current synagogue members and prospective members and develop a presence in our communities. Successful programs have brought us together as we studied with scholar, Ron Wolfson and URJ Vice President, Amy Asin. Your success is our success!- Alyse Kirschen
