Director of Operations
Growing up the daughter of a rabbi and a school principal, it was generally expected that everyone at shul and in the community knew who Shoshi was. Moving to Baltimore with no family connections was a start from scratch and reminder of how challenging it can be in a new place, a new shul, a new community. Setting a goal of a certain number of families to eat with for shabbat helped Shoshi to network and get to know the locals. While it hasn’t resulted in a husband, Shoshi has been able to find jobs, apartments, friends, etc.
Shoshi’s hope with A Single Impact is that singles will be able to network and enhance their lives with the connections made through us. If we help find your spouse, so much the better!
Having moved 16 times, Shoshi now considers Baltimore home. A paralegal by day, Shoshi enjoys spending free time assisting in the costume gemach, setting up friends, and hosting shabbat meals. Shoshi maintains mentoring relationships with work interns from years past, and offers guidance without judgment to her nephews and niece. She will likely invite you to join in on her next chessed project.
Having previously been married, and now divorced for 11 years, Rochel brings a different perspective to A Single Impact. Rochel is working to change the way singles are spoken to and about, to ensure that all singles, no matter the age or hashkafa level, are treated with respect and dignity.
Rochel is well known in the Baltimore community for creating opportunities that fill in the gaps not yet met by local organizations. She has spearheaded a grief support group for women who have lost a parent, an all-women’s theater group, and fundraised over $140,000 for a non-profit organization providing support for frum families and individuals dealing with life threatening or lifelong illnesses. Rochel is now using her creative talents to effect positive change for singles in the frum community. She has formed important connections with community leaders so that when a problem arises, she knows just who to reach out to for a solution and support.
A mental health therapist by day, Rochel works with clients on achieving their treatment goals to better their everyday lives. She enjoys kayaking and formulating plans to improve the world.
