This year's Global Day of Jewish Learning in Rockland has been designed as a response to the October 7 tragedy in Israel. In this time of conflict, how do Jewish values give us strength?


Please join us for the following sessions, offered both in person (at the Federation offices, 2nd Floor, Jewish Community Campus, 450 West Nyack Rd, West Nyack NY) and online.
