Within Metro Jewish Resources, we realize, if one desires to go fast, go alone. But if one desires to go far, one must have a team. The MJR growing team possesses diverse talents, and strengths working together to pioneer the calling of MJR. Mutual support, shared goals, cooperation, and encouragement seek to provide a kingdom synergy, to effectively formulate and implement the goals and objectives of MJR. We are thankful to the Lord for bringing individuals in sync with MJR's growing spheres of influence.
