2 Nancy Cole

Nancy Cole

For Nancy Cole, co-founding the Or Ami Village was as natural as being involved in Jewish organizational life. This was the legacy passed on to her l’dor vador (from generation to generation) from her grandparents, German-Jewish immigrants, who upon arriving on the shores of America, helped found the synagogue in New York in which Nancy learned to love Judaism. That deep legacy of community leadership instilled in her a keen sense of her Jewish heritage and the responsibility to give back and care for others. 

2 Judy Friedman V2


Judy Friedman

For Judy Friedman, co-founding the Or Ami Village grows out of the priorities that have governed her career and post-career endeavors: she simply wants to guide others toward healthy, comfortable, and meaningful lifestyles…accompanied by ample doses of kindness, empathy, laughter, and fun.

His passion for performance quickly endeared him to our youth and young adults, leading him to join the teaching faculty of our Kesher religious school. His role has expanded over the years and he currently serves as our Youth Engagement Coordinator, overseeing all of the education programs for 7-12 while assisting with our K-6 program.
