Connect2 Meet, Greet and Eat. Held in the offices of New York Foundation at the Empire State Building, this event was a great opportunity for the new director, Leah Davidowitz, to meet some of the Connect2 friendly visitors and show our newest volunteers what we are about! It was a very enjoyable evening that included fun games, a video presentation and of course great food! Our volunteers got share ideas about the program, and had the wonderful experience of meeting other selfless individuals who are equally devoted to the program’s mission- lighting up the life of a Holocaust survivor.
New Director for "Connect2": We are very excited to welcome Leah Davidowitz to the JCCGCI family as the new Director of our Connect2 home visitation program for Holocaust survivors. Leah, who is completing her Masters of Social Work (MSW) degree, has extensive experience in organizing and training volunteers, most recently at the Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services where she helped direct and coordinate their "HelpLine" and "Jewish Connections" "Bikur Cholim" (visiting the sick) programs. Leah is looking forward to working with all those already involved with Connect2 and embraces the opportunity to be a part of its expansion.
