Jennifer Kanwit is our new Events and Public Relations Officer. Since her installation in June, she has brought innovative ideas and planned exciting events for the Chapter. Let’s find out more….
Hometown and Current Town: Born and raised in New Jersey, Jennifer now lives with her husband and two adorable children in Brunswick, ME.

Why NCJW? NCJW has a huge footprint and a reputation for great work in the greater New York City area where Jennifer spent her life prior to Maine. Since moving to Vacation Land, she has been looking for the right opportunity to get involved, and now seemed like the right time.
What Excites you Most about Working with NCJW: Jennifer sees the need for greater participation from the next generation. She hopes to increase excitement and membership through events like “Manis and Macaroons”, a Passover themed evening where more than a dozen women turned out for an evening of manicures, wine, macaroons, and mingling. She continues to plan events that allow Jewish women to come together and connect.
Favorite Travel Spot: Locally she loves to go to the Samoset Resort in Rockport!
