Meet the Inaugural NAGID 360° Cohort

 

The mosaic of professional experiences of this cohort, from education and law to Healthcare and media, truly enables us to enter into strategic conversations. Each participant has a unique understanding of the Jewish and greater Charleston community, given their varying affiliations, varying amounts of time as Charleston residents, and volunteer activities.
