My name is Lauren, and I am your new program coordinator for children and youth. I am a fourth year undergraduate student at the University of Michigan studying international studies, with a plan to go into social work. I am also a camp director for a non-profit organization called Kesem, which provides support and year-round programming to kids impacted by a parent or caregiver’s cancer diagnosis. I look forward to supporting the congregation in building out the children and youth program that you all want for the community. You can reach Lauren by email at
