"One of the things I appreciate most about being a rabbi connected to the Jewish Federation of Howard County is that the small-to-medium size of our community allows for the possibility to effect real impact and change as an individual.  I have seen that passionate individuals or small groups have brought their vision for improving and enriching our Jewish community from idea to implementation through Federation."

-Rabbi Craig Axler,
Temple Isaiah
