Welcome back to Pull Up A Chair, our monthly podcast where we explore different themes and what it means to build and be a part of a strong Jewish community.

This month, we are officially entering our second season! Thank you to everyone who has pulled up a chair and listened to stories from around Jewish Baltimore.
