Ask Jen what energizes her and she will tell you that is very excited to be mentoring the youth of our community on their Jewish journeys. “I couldn’t be happier to be given the opportunity to expand my role and spend more time at Or Ami. These young people are so inspiring as they deepen their Jewish connections and discover their identities as Jews and as vessels of kindness. I am thrilled to be a part of such a warm and loving community.”
