SUMMER 2024 WITH OJC

Summer 2024 is an exciting time to be a part of

the OJC community.

We are beginning this season on the heels of Rabbi Drill's retirement and Rabbi Hersh's summer leadership at Camp Ramah Day Camp in Nyack, and we are invigorated by all of the possibilities that lay ahead. This email, providing important reminders regarding summer operations, is the first of a few communications you will receive in the coming months, providing you with timely reminders, opportunities to volunteer, and other types of important information.

Reliving Rabbi Drill's Retirement Celebration

Dear OJC Community,

 

It is wonderful that so many of you were able to join us for the joyous and meaningful celebration for Rabbi Drill on June 20. We are very grateful to everyone who made it such a special evening for our community as well as a successful fundraiser for our synagogue.


We hope that you will enjoy seeing the tribute video to Rabbi Drill, watching the recording of the ceremony, and taking a closer look at the journal in Rabbi Drill's honor.


Plus, there's still time to make a donation and be included in the journal before we print it for Rabbi Drill! Donations of all amounts will be included in the journal.
