Monthly Bulletin

September, 2020

Thank you to those who attended our programs in August with Qesher! We had a great turnout learning all about the Jews of Spain, Bulgaria, and Argentina. We hope to partner with Qesher again in the future to learn about more Jewish communities around the world.

Shanah Tova Umetukah!

The High Holidays have arrived, and here at the North Louisiana Jewish Federation we wish you have a happy, sweet, and healthy new year!

To respect the busy nature of the holiday season, we have not planned any programming during the months of September and October. Instead, we'd like to encourage you to spend some time with one of the amazing Congregations here in North Louisiana and enjoy what they are offering either online or in-person:
