After two and a half wonderful years, my time at Mayyim Hayyim is coming to an end. While preparing to write my last blog post, I went back and read my very first blog post after joining this amazing team in 2015:
When I was leaving from my interview, two men were sitting in our reception area holding their tiny, gorgeous newborn baby boy, so excited to welcome him into the world as a Jew. I got chills and hoped I would get that call back to come make a contribution at an organization that values the same things I do – inclusion, diversity, and accessibility.
I am so grateful to have watched these values shape the work of the wonderful women I’ve been fortunate enough to know and love, both professionally and personally. We have celebrated countless simchas (joyous moments) as a family. Our Simcha Committee truly outdoes itself every time there is a reason to celebrate. We have also stood by one another during difficult moments. It has been a blessing to work alongside such a kind and devoted board and staff.
Deciding to move on from Mayyim Hayyim was a monumental and difficult decision for me; I am returning to my love of Jewish camp and will be running operations and administration for one in the Berkshires.
I know I am leaving this place in the most capable of hands, and I can’t wait to watch Mayyim Hayyim soar to new heights. While I am excited about my new adventure, saying goodbye is never easy. So I’ll just say, thank you… for everything. I’ll see you soon!
Lori Kramer is the Office Manager at Mayyim Hayyim, and she will be sorely missed by her team.
