Kerry Epstein found her way to Women’s Philanthropy through friends at Temple Beth Elohim.
She regularly attended WP events and served on a handful of committees, but when she saw how CJP supported a member of her TBE community in a time of need, Kerry decided she was ready to take her involvement to a higher level.
“It was so eye opening and so compelling,” Kerry says. “For me, that was the moment I knew I wanted to take the next step with Women’s Philanthropy and CJP.”
An active participant in the WP Leadership Development Series, Kerry also serves on the Pomegranate Society & Friends Event committee. She recently deepened her commitment to WP by becoming a Lion of Judah, a giving society that recognizes a woman's gift of $5,000 or more to CJP's Annual Campaign.
Kerry says she loves the new community that she has found through Women’s Philanthropy. And, she says, the experience has helped her reconnect with her own Jewish values.
“I love that it has driven me to be more thoughtful about leading by example in my own family, and helped me to further instill values like kindness and respect in my own home.”
Kerry says she looks forward to continuing her path with WP.
“Women are incredibly powerful, and we have the great privilege and responsibility to repair the world around us – both close to home and far away,” she says. “And through my involvement in WP, I am helping to make others’ lives better and my own life better.”
