We are excited to share that Cara Levine will be joining the JTConnect leadership team full-time as our new Associate Program Director. Cara graduated from the University of Hartford’s Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies. During her college career, she was very active in Jewish life on campus and worked at a number of local synagogues and agencies. She was a fellow in the Collegiate Leadership Internship Program at NYU’s Bronfman Center for Jewish Life and interned in the Day Camp and Strategic Programs Department at the Foundation for Jewish Camping.
No stranger to JTConnect, Cara interned with us last year where she spearheaded our annual heritage trip to NYC and Tikkun Leil Shavuot all-nighter. As she completed her studies, Cara worked for JTConnect part-time coordinating one of our weekly learning programs.
Cara will officially be starting on January 5th. I encourage you to reach out and welcome her! Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Our staff expansion would not have been possible without the vision from the Jewish Community Foundation who recognized JTConnect’s growth in recent years and the challenges that come with it. I am humbled by their confidence in us and their investment in Jewish teens in Greater Hartford.
