Thank you to the over 400 members of our community who attended JCRC's celebration honoring Rabbi Doug Kahn's 30th anniversary. The evening was filled with heartfelt good wishes for Doug. The audience was moved and uplifted by a special video tribute to Doug, which ended with rousing applause and a standing ovation at the announcement of a $1.15 million fund established in Doug's name to support JCRC's trips to Israel for officials and civic leaders.
We are grateful for the extraordinary generosity of the founding donors of the Doug Kahn Israel Outreach Travel Fund, and to all who participated in the event. Your support made it a truly memorable night!
