Naomi Kohl to head up JFS Greenwich online support group


GREENWICH – Naomi Kohl has been appointed project manager of the Online Support Group Project (OSGP), a new initiative of Jewish Family Services of Greenwich.

Through confidential video conferencing, OSGP makes it possible for people who have difficulty leaving their homes to connect with others in similar situations.

Previously, Kohl, who received a Masters of Social Work degree from Yeshiva University, was a program director and Jewish educator at the University of Maryland Hillel, where she created innovative programming for Jewish women and inspired others to get involved in the community. She also recently worked at SAR Academy in Riverdale, N.Y. as alumni relations coordinator, and at Westchester Hebrew High School, where she taught Judaic studies.

Recently, Kohl relocated to Stamford, where her husband is rabbi of the Young Israel of Stamford.

“I look forward to my role as project manager for the Online Support Group Project at JFS as I am so excited about the intersection between technology and social services,” she says. “It is the perfect opportunity to bring my passion and creativity to connect to others, in a unique and innovative way.”
