I've become recently involved with The Associated, and Jewish Family Service in particular. I've recently joined that board as well as the Board of my synagogue, Beth El. I think what has been affirming to me has been, so much of the work I do is working in communities where really I'm an outsider and I have worked really hard to be accepted for the values and the contributions and the vision and mission. I have to try to make improvements along with the community residents, but you are never, you're always an outsider. And what's been heartening about becoming more recently involved with my synagogue and particularly with The Associated is that I am a member of the community and it's really a very different, wonderful feeling to really participate as a real member and with other members of your own community.
