•Have you ever done one of those DNA tests to learn more about your family tree and history? FVJN member Alysa Hwalisz recently contacted FVJN Executive Director Rachel Yackley and said she’d learned that they are distant cousins, from doing this type of DNA test! It’s truly a very small world, and you might be pleasantly surprised with what you learn!

•Shabbat Gatherings will resume in September.
