FERTILITY BUDDIES

Our fertility buddies practice “relationship-based support.” Individuals currently experiencing infertility and/or trying to build their family are matched with trained fertility buddy veterans, who understand the pressure, pain, and emotional upheaval caused by infertility and various paths to parenthood, and can offer the much-needed support to their buddies.

Tamar Poupko Smith grew up in Montreal, Canada and after living in Israel, New York, Baltimore and Cincinnati, is proud to call Cleveland her home. She has a B.A. from Yeshiva University and has spent over twenty years in the Jewish non-profit world, in both professional and lay positions. Her most recent work has been with Jewish day schools, and in whatever capacity, Tamar is always engaged in working toward their success.

Tamar joins JFF after serving on the JFF-CLE advisory board and is thrilled that JFF is expanding to include Cleveland; a strong, vibrant and welcoming Jewish community. She looks forward to connecting with, and supporting individuals on their family-building journeys with compassion and sensitivity. Tamar’s parents and four siblings have all dedicated themselves,  professionally, to the Jewish community and they continue to inspire her to serve and better our communities and the Jewish people.

Tamar is active in a number of local non-profits including Fuchs Mizrachi School, the Jewish Federation of Cleveland, the Community Beit Midrash, and Bnei Akiva. Tamar enjoys spending time with her husband Elliot, their four children and one incredible goldendoodle named Leo.
