My connection to CBB began with how welcomed we felt as a family when my wife Jamie and I moved to Santa Barbara in 2011. Both of our boys spent a year at BHY, are currently enrolled in Netivot, and my wife has been in various leadership groups, has run the Purim carnival, and served on CBB’s nominating committee. It has been a pleasure for both of us to be a part of this community.
