Congratulations! Mazeltov!

I expect and hope that the newly-conceived Jewish Community Center et al will continue be an asset to the entire community of Palo Alto as well, as it has been in the past.

I myself am only Jewish through maternal heredity (according to family lore, my maternal great grandmother was the last known practicing member of the faith before our family became both spiritually and ethically "mixed"), but I always felt welcomed by the JCC regardless of my current status, and I feel that they have definitely been a desireable beneficiary to the City of Palo Alto as a whole, as well as Palo Alto's Jewish community itself.
