In the spirit of a testimonial posted on the UUs for Jewish Awareness website, “I can be Jewish and Unitarian Universalist, or, as some call it, Junitarian. No one here has asked me to give up what it is I value about my upbringing,” everyone is invited to attend and bring ideas to the UUCF chapter’s first meeting.
