Why are you here?

My passion and “why” are community building and storytelling, but since arriving at Jewish Silicon Valley, it’s become about a lot more.


My daughter has several mental and learning disabilities.

It’s been a struggle our whole journey finding a place where she fits in, let alone a community that actively tries to make life easier and more fun for her.

Since arriving at JSV, I have been overwhelmed by the support and genuine care of this community to really help us find and make a space for us.

I am now here because I truly believe the group of individuals serving this community have every intention and capability to create true and meaningful connection and change for the Jewish community and beyond in Silicon Valley.

The consistent passion and dedication from this group to truly make something good, welcoming, inclusive, fun, and rooted in Jewish values is simply incredible.
