More than 1,200 Jewish communal professionals gathered May 2-4 in Cleveland for “JPro22: Going Places Together.” One of the largest Jewish professional gatherings since the start of the pandemic, the conference represented a profound moment of reconnection and meaning making. JPro connects, educates, inspires and empowers professionals working in the Jewish community sector. Rabbi Deborah Waxman, Ph.D., president and CEO of Reconstructing Judaism, served as a conference co-chair. “As we take our leave from each other, as we head home to cities across the United States and Canada, it’s on all of us to make certain we keep going places, together,” Waxman told the participants at the close of the conference.
