Earlier this year, Gary shared the vision for reframing Kol Rinah’s Membership Committee into the Engagement Committee. That work is well underway:   Our idea is that we need to build the right structures to ensure we’re producing the programming that Kol Rinah needs to provide for our members and for the community.
