About 20 committed Jewish communal professionals gathered on

Monday, February 28th, to share, connect and learn about our successes and failures in our professional life.

Through 3 - 20 minute coachee/coach sessions, we shared our challenges, learned new tools, encouraged each other to try new things, work hard and stay committed to our professional goals.

Our goal is to continue having these sessions as each professional, coach or coachee, walked away with having learned so much from one another.

To be involved in planning the next Coach-In please email: 

As Co-Presidents for more than two years, we are thrilled to announce the next Co-President, Jillian Katz, a dedicated executive committee member and the 37th Annual Dinner Chair last year. She is also the Youth Outreach & Engagement Coordinator for Jewish Federation and Family Services Orange County.

In the coming months we will be guiding Jillian to make a smooth transition into her new role. Additionally, the other new Co-President joining Jillian will be announced at our 38th Annual Honors Dinner on November 29th.

We will be officially transitioned by the end of the calendar year.
