Testimonials from PEP-RJ Members

“From the first moment I joined my colleagues at our conference in 2009, I felt welcomed into a great group of professionals who understand my challenges and are equally passionate about the Jewish community.”

- Andy Wayne, PEP-RJ President


Being a part of PEP-RJ is like oil to an engine. My colleagues and I depend on each other for creative programming and membership engagement ideas, professional development, peer support and so much more. PEP-RJ is like my professional family of people who really understand what I do and the challenges (good and bad) of being a programming professional. The value of PEP-RJ is limitless.

- Judy Thomas, Past President


In 2006 I was a brand new Program Director and new to the Jewish Communal world.  The warm welcome that I experienced at my first conference continues today. I look forward to our annual conference and learning with other professionals who "GET" what I do and the challenges I experience.
