Planning for the Day of Discovery began seven months ago and includes a task force with professional and lay representatives from each congregation and sponsoring agency. “It is a delight to work with this remarkable group of dedicated and committed individuals who work tirelessly over the summer to make this event possible,” commented Annette Fish, Administrator/Program Director, Rabbinical Association of Greater Kansas City. “Several task force members have been part of the planning for this event since we began offering the program, six years ago.”
