JFREJ's 15th Annual Rabbi Marshall T. Meyer Risk Taker Awards were a smashing success! The JFREJ community and allies came out in full force to celebrate a year of hard work - and the decades of inspiring work of our honorees! Freedom Riders Reverend C. T. Vivian and Joan Pluene, Jose Antonio Vargas, and Lucia Allain from United We Dream inspired us to take brave lessons of struggles won and re-commit ourselves to the fight today!

Enjoy some pictures below from this beautiful event.
