Meet Our Team

Karen Wald, South Area Family Program Coordinator

Karen has been creating programs and events for families with young children since 2010. Karen lives in Sharon with her husband and two teenage children. Karen is dedicated to maintaining a strong JCC presence in the South Area with a wide range of engaging programs and classes for parents, families and children. Karen’s favorite program is the weekly drop-in group, PJ Library Bagels and Books, because it’s a great starting point for meeting and connecting families – friends are made, resources are shared, and lots of bagels are consumed.
Please contact Karen. She’s here to help!

Alison Berenson, South Area Welcome Baby! Coordinator

Ally lives in Sharon with her husband and two young children. Her favorite events from the past year were Meet the Firefighters (at a local fire station) and Kids in the Kitchen make-your-own hummus program - both had sold out attendance and rave reviews. Ally is committed to connecting area families through easy and informal programs.

Please contact Ally. She’s here to help!

Candace Lyons, Family Connector

Candace lives in Norton, MA with her husband and young daughter. Her favorite event was the South Area's Summertime Sushi Moms' Night Out. It's become a bit of a tradition to kick-off the summer with a sushi-themed moms' night out. This past year we went to Kyoto in Mansfield and had a great group of women connect and have fun over all-you-can-eat sushi. 

Please contact Candace. She’s here to help!

Dianna Abrams, Family Connector

Dianna lives in Easton with her husband and young daughter. Dianna loves connecting with families through the weekly PJ Library Bagels and Books Drop-in Group, Playground Meet-ups in the summer, and Stroller Walks. Dianna is committed to creating meaningful children's programs connected to Jewish values as well as maintaining a strong presence of community in the South Area through fun and informal playgroups.
