FUSE Wins 2017 National Award from United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism

We are thrilled to share that on August 8, 2017, the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ) announced the winners of its 2017 Solomon Schechter Awards, designed to recognize initiatives that shape an authentic and dynamic experience of Conservative Judaism. Congregation Ohev Shalom, FUSE’s founding partner and supporter, was distinguished at the highest level for innovation and impact, in the “Prophetic Voice” category. Eleven others synagogues across the country were recognized for excellence in one of five categories as well.

More than 185 programs were submitted for consideration, and a panel of 15 judges carefully reviewed the entries to select the winners. All of the congregations recognized, including representatives from Ohev Shalom and FUSE, will present their award-winning initiatives at the 2017 USCJ convention, December 1-5 in Atlanta, GA. Stay tuned for more information!
