🎤 In Case You Missed It…

Check out this blog post featuring the commencement speech given by Meg Adler at the 2021 graduation ceremony for Tawonga’s Bar, Bat & B’nai Mitzvah program. In May, the fourth cohort of 49 students celebrated the culmination of their two-year journey together and reflected on what a Jewish way of being means to them.
