Lara is a model leader who is making exceptional changes in our community. This past year, she co-chaired the Executive Committee on Young Adults and led its smooth transition and evolution. A local Jewish day school graduate, she uses her particular passions for the arts, social justice, and philanthropy to connect with her community, always acting as an ambassador for CJP in her leadership roles in other organizations. Her service on the President Search Committee this year was highly influential, and CJP benefited from the depth of her knowledge about the young adult perspective. Lara’s ability to connect, inspire, and have fun doing so makes her a consummate and emerging leader who is cultivating and training others in CJP’s young adult community.
