From helping build the foundation of the Mission minyan and carrying it forward, to membership committees and pre-school outreach at her synagogue, Jen focuses her free time to building Jewish community. She has a background in fashion design and business and currently leads business development for a chocolate store on San Francisco’s Pier 39.
