Talia grew up in California before making her way to Lexington, KY and now Cincinnati, OH. She has a Masters in Social Work, and has dedicated much of her work to the Jewish community. In Lexington, Talia served as Director of Jewish Family Services and Coordinator of Informal Jewish Education with a focus on PJ Library. She has supported individuals, partnered with amazing organizations, and created programs for adult education, volunteers, and families.
In 2019, Talia moved to Cincinnati with her family. Her husband is a rabbi, and they have two amazing children. Talia feels fortunate for her family, and wants to support others in their journey.
Talia has witnessed remarkable resiliency within those around her, including those who have experienced infertility. She is inspired by JFF’s holistic way of supporting individuals on their fertility journey and JFF’s commitment to raising awareness. Talia is honored to help support others and serve this incredible community.
Dan felt like this would be a natural opportunity to give back and help those struggling with infertility. Infertility is generally not spoken about and even less so in male circles. I hope through my participation I can help others feel more comfortable talking about and navigating through a very personal and uncomfortable topic.
Julia believes in bringing a positive conversation about infertility into the spotlight. So many families struggle with it, and it affects many in the community. She believes in the work that JFF is doing to flip the narrative surrounding infertility from shame to education so we can all support the members of our kehila who are struggling. JFF provides a fantastic resource for the Cincinnati community and she is excited to help facilitate its growth!
After a challenging, five-year journey with secondary infertility, I am blessed to have my miracle baby. JFF played a critical role in my fertility journey. The seminars, support groups, and my amazing Fertility Buddy helped me feel supported and understood. I would love to give back to JFF and the Cincinnati community experiencing infertility. I am passionate about supporting women who are experiencing challenging fertility journeys so that they can feel supported.
When Alana was asked to be part of the advisory council, it was an opportunity she could not turn down. It was a project that had just launched here in Cincinnati, and she was excited to see it take off. Coming from the orthodox community, Alana understood that JFF was important and needed for the community as a whole. Cincinnati has never had a Jewish organization like this, and Alana is fueld to be part of the change.
Before welcoming their second son through IVF, Alexis struggled for almost four years with secondary infertility. Much of this struggle was in silence- and as a verbal processor, this was not easy. In addition to the financial shock and juggling work and childcare with fertility treatments, she wanted another woman to vent to, laugh about injections with, and someone to distract her during the unbearable "two week wait." After discovering JFF, Alexis didn't feel so alone in her family's journey, and instead felt more empowered. She is thrilled to support and serve such a welcoming and warm organization as JFF.
