With so much programming going on within the Jewish community JPOD CLT aims to educate and inform you each week, so you can get involved in programs that you feel passionate about. Episodes will cover topics ranging from social action opportunities, holiday and community events, or personal stories, and how they make our Jewish community stronger and more visible to the greater Charlotte region. This started as a lightbulb idea when I realized just how much time it took to keep up with every email, FB post and CJN article about events in the community. Listen on your way to work, school or the gym once a week for just a few minutes to learn about the opportunities and stories available in your Jewish backyard.
Episode 4: Shalom Baby
An opportunity for parents with new babies to meet and start networking in the community. Plus you can start an early love for story time and reading with your new baby.
