Thank you so much to all who participated and contributed to making JCRC Behind the Scenes 2019 a phenomenal success!
We are deeply grateful to everyone who turned out to honor our community champions -- Laura Lauder, URJ Camp Newman and California State University Maritime Academy, and Peninsula Multifaith Coalition -- and we are inspired by the tremendous support from the community.
