Young Jewish professionals gathered at Brixton, a British-style restaurant and pub in the District’s U Street corridor for the sixth annual AJC ACCESS DC Winter Party.
Cassie Chesley, the Goldman Bridge Fellow at AJC’s Washington regional office, said the Jan. 28 event was an opportunity to celebrate the work they do through the year.
“We’re really excited to have everyone here. It’s a great way to bring together Jews from all different parts of the community to celebrate,” said Chesley.
The event co-chairs were Shirley Adelstein, Vera Rosenthal and Adrianne Berman.
Nelson France, co-chair of AJC, said he was pleased at the number of new faces at the event and that he is looking forward to continuing the work AJC does with diplomatic, interfaith and intergroup outreach.
“We’re psyched for 2015 what we can do together as a team due to our supporters of AJC ACCESS here in Washington,” said France.
The next AJC ACCESS DC event is March 30. That will be its first Black-Jewish Community Seder, at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. The AJC ACCESS DC is joining with the synagogue, the young professionals program of the Urban League and local African-American churches for the seder.
