Welcome to The Network

Hello! My name is Addie Lewis Klein, and I’m the executive director of the newly-named Louise D. and Morton J. Macks Jewish Connection Network, affectionately known as “The Network.” We are a proud Associated agency, focused on helping people just like YOU meet new people, find experiences in the Jewish community that is right for you, and help you navigate all the Jewish resources available in Baltimore and online.

You might already be familiar with some of the work we do—PJ Library, Community Connectors, supporting families with children with special needs, service-oriented programs and concierge matching for volunteer opportunities.

Now, all of these programs are united as The Network. We are all working towards the same goal—empowering people to explore and deepen their own Jewish journey—inspiring us all to form lasting connections to a diverse, inclusive and vibrant Baltimore Jewish community.

This monthly newsletter is designed for adults raising Jewish children. We’re here to help you find your own “village” of support for your Jewish family. We know it can be overwhelming to figure out what is the right fit for your family, and we aim to make this easier for you to navigate.

The newsletter includes links to things we think you’d be interested in, plus a few events and gatherings. In addition to the newsletter, we’ll also send you a monthly event roundup—an easy to digest list of opportunities we think you might like.

We want to hear from you! Please reach out and tell us how we can help you make new connections and find the next step on your Jewish journey—whatever that means for you.

Looking forward to connecting!
