‘Tis the Season! As we celebrate the Holidays with our families and friends, we need to acknowledge and celebrate Oklahoma’s diverse and varied community. Oklahomans all have their traditions and customs. From Christmas to Kwanzaa to Hanukkah, it is a time to enjoy and spread cheer for all. One such Oklahoman who spreads cheer and glee wherever they go is Lynn Schusterman! Lynn Schusterman was born in Kansas City but was raised in Oklahoma City. She is among one of the world's most active and influential Jewish activists/philanthropists. She has spent her life advocating for education, and social welfare, as well as spreading the joy of Jewish living and learning. We can all learn from Lynn Schusterman and her dedication to helping others during this Holiday Season. Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Heri za Kwanzaa (Happy Kwanzaa)!
