Featuring Leora, Jonathan and Koa Weiner

Where are they from:  Leora and Jonathan are both originally from the NY/NJ area. Their son Koa was born in Boulder, Colorado where they lived for the last 7 years before moving to Seattle.

What they like doing these days: They are enjoying riding their bikes around the city and exploring local parks and waterways (Discovery Park is their personal favorite closely followed by Golden Gardens Park). They also love to dance, cook, make sushi, and go on urban nature walks. 

Favorite recent travel memory: Going to Long Beach on the Washington coast over Thanksgiving vacation.  Jonathan, Leora and Koa love visiting the pacific coast with its endless and beautiful beaches. Walking the beach at sunset has become one of their cherished family travel activities.

What's on their winter bucket list: Going on vacation somewhere warm and sunny. As much as they like the mild Seattle winters they miss sunny days. They're also hoping to make it to the mountains this winter for a weekend or two.

What excites them about Mercaz: One of their favorite things since landing in Seattle has been the Mercaz community. It's introduced them to many amazing people and has given them a spiritual home that they feel expresses and supports their Jewish and social values.

Mercaz's annual Chanukah campaign got off to a great start on Giving Tuesday and continues through Chanukah

These funds will be used to support important shul needs beyond what was planned for including enhancing the children's and teen's programs and starting a transition savings fund to help our shul find and move to a bigger space.
