Jennifer joined The Temple-Tifereth Israel staff in August 2019.  She just moved back to Cleveland after living in Cincinnati for 20 years. She came from the Cincinnati campus of Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion where she was the Manager of Outreach, working with all departments on campus and the national administration.  She coordinated campus outreach events, including museum openings, concerts, lectures, symposia, and collaborative and interfaith programming with outside agencies and organizations.  She coordinated outreach efforts through electronic and social media in continuing collaboration with the College-Institute’s national administration, as well as local and regional agencies and institutions.  She acted as events manager to coordinate space rentals on campus.  She partnered with the operations director on implementation of security procedures, maintenance requests, trainings and drills, and overall campus logistics. Before HUC-JIR, she worked in various non-profit organizations.

Jennifer lives in Shaker Heights.  Her dog “Frizbee” is really excited about finally having a yard of his own.  As a loyal and longtime fan, she’s also thrilled to be back just in time for the Cleveland Browns to win their first Super Bowl.  She looks forward to getting reacquainted with the City of Cleveland again after such a long absence.  She is a graduate of Case Western Reserve University and was appointed to the CWRU Alumni Association Board in 2018.
