How did you get involved with The Associated? Growing up in Baltimore I always felt connected to The Associated and Jewish Baltimore. I took a high school trip to Israel with The Associated, then as a young professional, participated in Tel Aviv One, a young professional mission to Israel. I also graduated from the Associated Young Leadership Council program and now sit on the Board of the Real Estate Industry Group (REIG) and The Associated’s Real Estate Committee.
