Social Action

Chair: Caryn Roth

The Social Action Committee focuses on branching out to the larger Columbus community, both Jewish and non-affiliated, to become active through community service. The Jewish community in Columbus is growing and there are many in need of help, financially and physically through volunteer efforts. Members coordinate events and programs with outside agencies such as shelters, outdoor recreation facilities and Jewish organizations.

Professional Development

Chair: Robbie Friedman

The Professional Development Committee brings together young Jewish professionals through social and networking events to educate and enhance social connections. The Committee focuses on attracting active, leading Jewish professionals who have excelled in their career fields to speak and socialize at events. Being young professionals with long careers ahead, the expertise of those with experience in the community provides excellent services and networking capabilities. Events include wine tastings, socials, and general speaker events.


Chair: Michael Schottenstein

The Social Committee is comprised of a team of engaged young adults who combine efforts to coordinate programming and fun, exciting events. The Committee focuses on social events such as monthly Happy Hours, trips, sporting, the Annual Mazel Ball event, and other activities. The group seeks to create a warm, friendly environment to welcome new members and are open to suggestions and involvement from interested participants.


Chair: Beth Shaprio

The Spiritual Committee organizes religious and Jewish culturally- oriented programming, including monthly Shabbats, dinners, and Israel oriented events. The Committee's goal is to enhance the importance of education through traditional Jewish values, ethics and morals through synagouge affiliation, local Jewish educational events and partnership with other agencies. Young adults are encouraged to become more active in the local religious community through these events and affiliation, which promote cohesiveness amongst the Jewish community.
