Announcing our new Shalom POP Coordinators! This dynamic duo will be facilitating playgroups for your little ones and can't wait to hear from you about what you'd like to see! 
Sarah Myer has lived in Charleston since 2006 and is mom to Jake (11 months). She's excited about connecting families to one another, the greater Charleston community, and their Jewish heritage. Becoming a parent has revealed a new perspective on perpetuating a Jewish identity and she looks forward to collaborating with others about how to instill values and meaning among the next generation. 
Lauren Manaker moved to James Island from South Florida (Go Gators!) in 2008 and lives with her husband Matt, daughter Hannah, and fur-baby Bella. She is passionate about supporting young families and is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with this amazing community through PJ Library!
