We at JGN are in mourning over the death of our beloved founder, long time committee member and dear friend, Linda Lee. Linda died early in the morning of Monday, March 31st. Our hearts go out to Linda, her family and all whom she loved. Linda embodied the true spirit of Tikkun Olam as she worked to create a world that was welcoming and safe for everyone. As an ally to the Jewish LGBT community, she encouraged all allies to "come out" in support of LGBT people. She dreamed that all congregations would become inclusive of LGBT members. Her wisdom, her caring and her guiding spirit will be greatly missed by all of us. In memory of Linda, JGN will work to make Linda's dream become a reality. Your help as advisors, committee volunteers and financial supporters will help JGN and the JCC continue the mission that Linda set out for us.

If you would like to help JGN in anyway, please contact the JGN office at 248-432-5467 or mphillips@jccdet.org
