Dear 4Front Teens, Parents, and Supporters,
I wanted to let you all know that I have accepted an opportunity at Cornell University Hillel in Ithaca, NY and will be leaving 4Front on June 23.
While I am sad to leave 4Front, I am excited for this move as I am looking for ways of growing and being of best service to the Jewish community and the world. It has been a great blessing to have had the oppourtinity to work at 4Front and support so many amazing teens in our community and I am so proud to have led the CIT, SIF, and PLF programs over this year.
CIT 2022 was a blast and I loved spending time with the CITs, discuss leadership, and get to know them over the course of a whole/half summer. It is a top-quality CIT program in an amazing camp that is run with so much experience, intentionality, and care. Thank you JCamps and 2022 CITs!
Peer Leadership Fellows (PLF) and Social Innovation Fellowship (SIF) are the most unique, valuable, and incredible programs and I am so glad I’ve had the privilege of running them this year. Each of these programs is a journey that helps grow Jewish leaders in so many different ways while teaching them valuable life skills and fostering appreciation of Jewish values. I can’t think of a better gift for the future of the Jewish community than these and am proud of how much work and care myself and the team put toward running and continuously developing these programs. Thank you to all fellows who worked with me this year! You are such talented, thoughtful, and impressive individuals and I can’t wait to see what you achieve in life. Thank you to all partners, mentors, and supporters who I’ve had the pleasure of working with as part of these programs.
I came to 4Front at a transitional time for the organization and its team and am glad that I will leave knowing that there is an amazing, dedicated, and experienced team in place to keep supporting Baltimore’s Jewish teens and all those who care about them. I am also excited for the future of this organization under the leadership of Diana Solomon who does incredible work with endless dedication, effort, and care. I have no doubt that 4Front’s programs will keep running at the highest level of professionalism and intentionality and can’t recommend these enough to all Jewish teens and adults!
Thank you all for a great year! I will be continuing the work of relational engagement, innovation, and Jewish programming on a larger scale on my next chapter and look forward to further strengthening our Jewish community and world.
See you at the 4Front!
