What do ACC colleagues in Toronto, Florida, New Hampshire, California, Memphis and Jerusalem have in common during the upcoming year and what can you do join their ranks?
It's easy! Please consider hosting an ACC-URJ Campership Concert in your congregation or community. Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to help send more kids to URJ camps than ever before, as well as, helping to strengthen the American Conference of Cantors to provide fundamental programs that benefit us all.
Don't be left out of this important, meaningful and fun initiative! Thank you for your support!
