Also, JSDD presented an Honoree Award to Alfred Anthony, Deputy Mayor, Livingston for his many accomplishments and dedication to making the community a better place, particular to members with special needs.
To continue supporting our talented artists, JSDD invites our friends, families, and constituents to experience our interactive art exhibit hosted at the Gaelen Gallery East at the JCC in West Orange, which will be open to the public from November 11th through December 30th, 2018.

The vibrant talents of our individual members are once again on display for the community to appreciate, and we couldn’t be more appreciative of the support we receive to enable these programs.”
