Women who are new to the area or looking to get more involved were welcomed into the Jewish community on Jan. 12 at a bake and brunch. The event was presented by Women’s Philanthropy of the Jewish Federation and chaired by Emily Ford and Alli Lipson.
The newcomers came together with some more seasoned community members to bake mini apple crisps for older adults, in partnership with Jewish Family Service to be included in a Mazel Meal.
They then spent some time getting to know each other and learning about all of the upcoming opportunities for women in the Jewish community. Each newcomer will be paired with a mentor by Federation to help her continue to experience what the Jewish community has to offer.
