Steven Berkowitz, Nicole Finkielsztein, and Helene Weiner


Steven, Nicole, and Helene are the Co-chairs of Together at Home, a monthly, virtual series that CJP launched during the pandemic to help young adults remain socially connected and engaged. Each month, the Co-chairs helped design interactive opportunities for young adults to come together, hear from unique speakers, and learn firsthand about CJP’s impact.

Steven, Nicole, and Helene have helped build this new program from the ground up. They are true thought partners who continue to provide critical insight on what young adults are looking for during these challenging times, and how CJP can provide support.

They oversee a steering committee of committed young adult lay leaders who serve as cheerleaders and ambassadors for this program. During a time when research has shown that young adults are lonely and isolated, Steven, Nicole, and Helene have helped more than 130 people in our local Jewish community connect with each other and with CJP in a meaningful way.

The program launch last fall was so successful that they are now leading a spring session, which began with an evening dedicated to mental health. Steven, Nicole, and Helene are fabulous lay leaders who are dedicated to connecting young adults to CJP.
