NewCAJE  2019 was held at Reed College. ORA was invited to participate….and that we did! What’s NewCAJE? It’s the Conference of Jewish Educators!!!!

Some of our ORA Members answered the call Saturday night to lead about 100 participants in Havdallah in the Modern Mishkan art installation by Diane Fredgant with an accompanying Chuppah by Laura joy Fendel.

Sunday morning we opened an art sale featuring the art of Wendelin Russell, Diane Fredgant, Laura Joy Fendel, Eddy Shuldman, Deborah Eisenbach Budner, Judith Hankin, Brauna Ritchie, Andrea Meyer, and Glenn Decherd.

We also taught an art workshop! Diane Fredgant, Wendelin Russel, Laura Joy, Esther Liberman and Eddy Shuldman taught  “A Word of Torah, A Piece of Art.” It was so well attended that we had to expand our work tables into the hallway!

So proud of our ORA artists!
