The Eastside Jewish Commons (EJC) project has been very active these past months. The EJC board has written a solid business plan and they have secured important early investment capital. There are 14 Jewish organizations working actively on the plans for the EJC and many Eastside Jewish community stakeholders have signed on in support. They have been developing ideas of programs that EJC can make possible even before we have secured a permanent facility.  A beautiful folder of plans, designs, artist renderings, and information has been made and the search for possible sites continues.
