Why I Serve on the JPRO Board:

From the moment I joined the predecessor organization of JPRO while a graduate student, I have had the feeling of not just having a job or a career, but of being part of a movement. I hope that through my JPRO involvement we can continue to instill that same feeling with the thousands working in the Jewish field.
