Suzanne and her husband Todd Ruback have been members of BJ since 2007. Suzanne started volunteering at BJ upon joining; cooking for the shelter, serving weekly guests at the lunch program and she eventually became involved with and chaired a number of membership committees. From 2014-2016 she co-chaired the Israel Dialogue Initiative, a pioneer project at BJ that has helped and encouraged members to tackle difficult conversations with respect and understanding. Todd volunteers at the BJ shelter and stays overnight on a monthly basis. BJ has brought a new Judaism into their lives that could not have been imagined before 2007 and they are ever grateful.
