Meet Our Team!


Jew in the City, over the last five years, has had many wonderful people helping out in many different ways, through graphic design, marketing advice, fund raising advice, event planning, research assistance, website assistance  among other things. There have always been generous volunteers working with JITC.

In the last few months, though, we have put together a team of interns who are devoting even more time to JITC’s mission, through social media, production assistance, marketing, research and much more. We wanted to introduce you to our fabulous team, and I wanted to publicly acknowledge and thank them for helping me to make the dream of JITC bigger and better than anything I could ever do on my own.
