Name: Nikki Shapiro
Profession: Full-time volunteer
How long have you been on the board?
This is my 3rd year
Why did you join the board?
To be a part of the team who secures a vibrant Jewish Ottawa for my children and grandchildren.
My area of strategic community concern: Increasing Jewish engagement
My goals are:
I want to create a network through the Momentum Program (formerly JWRP) as well as a connection to Israel through the Shinshinim Program and our partnership (P2G). Promoting volunteerism and encouraging those in my network to get involved and find their passion is a priority. I strive to connect people together and feel passionate about promoting the programs and organizations within the Jewish Federation of Ottawa.
My favourite aspect of the Ottawa Jewish community:
The diversity of programs, organizations and people in our small, but mighty, Jewish Ottawa.
