Two hundred of the nation’s top Jewish communal professionals will convene next month in Baltimore for the Jewish Communal Service Association of North America’s (JCSA) Annual Program. The Tuesday, June 5 event will feature workshops and discussions by distinguished leaders in the field to address the challenges and choices of today’s Jewish community professional. The program runs from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the Weinberg Park Heights JCC (5700 Park Heights Avenue, Baltimore).
