As Liberal Judaism approaches its 118th year, we want to focus on the important role that so many people have played in giving chai to our movement. Our fundraising dinner will celebrate those people and focus on ensuring that we can continue to be the home for your Jewish story for another 118 years to come.
Nominations are now open for the Mitzvah Day Awards 2019 and we'd like to see as many Liberal Judaism communities in the running as possible.
Categories include outstanding project, interfaith, youth and 'Going Greener'.
To nominate your community, you need to complete the short online form at http://www.thejc.co/mdawards (please note you must be registered with the Jewish Chronicle to take part - but there is no cost to this).
