Celebrate the Festival of Votes!

 In Baltimore, Maryland, Montgomery County, Washington, DC

We all know that the Fall is full of Jewish holidays, but did you know that there’s a new one that was just added to the calendar? This year it falls on November 4th through 6th, and it’s called The Festival of Votes.

The Festival of Votes is observed in many different ways by many different Jews, like all of our holidays. If you are in Washington, DC, you might celebrate it by handing out literature at your own polling place. If you’re in Montgomery County, MD, you might do the same thing, but at a metro station. Here are the celebrations that the JUFJ Campaign Fund is planning this year:
