The connector program is an exciting program designed to connect Jewish families with their neighbors all around the Baltimore area.  The program revolves around the work of “Connectors”, who spend two years working to build a network of Jewish families in their neighborhoods.  During their two years, connectors work to develop their own leadership skills and immerse themselves in the Jewish community. They create programming, play-dates and meet ups that allow them to cultivate and deepen relationships with individuals and families. Their goal, ultimately, is to help young families build connections with each other, with the larger Jewish community, and with Jewish tradition.

Please contact Rachel Plotkin or 410.735.5013 if you are interested in learning more about the program.

Our connectors are friendly, excited, passionate and committed individuals that devote time and energy to this project and to young families interested in getting more involved with Jewish life, activity, and community.
