Emma Firsten-Kaufman

Emma Firsten-Kaufman has been attending DJC services and events for half her life and is excited by the opportunity to be involved with the Board. With a Jewish identity borne of secular Sunday school, religious summer camp, and international volunteer work, she was committed to reconnecting as an adult to a Jewish community inclusive of the breadth of Jewish experience. Emma has a Masters of Public Health degree and works at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, where she is dedicated to making Ontario’s health system more coordinated, accessible, and evidence-based. When not working, she is mostly practicing Spanish, doodling, or dancing.
