Introduce Yourself: Andrea Feldheim
What's Your Story?
Hello, my name is Andrea Jane Feldheim. This September will be three years since my husband David and I moved to Los Angeles from Philadelphia. We moved to be near our children and grandchildren, who are the joy of our lives. I gave up a lot to come here, but I am delighted to be living here. I worked for many years as an attorney in Philadelphia.

To everything there is a season…
This time of leadership transition at ChaiVillageLA gives us a chance to reflect on how far we’ve come. Last weekend, Sandy Silas & Janet Noah, our training creators, led their 7th and final training. This dynamic duo trained over 120 members to understand our giving back culture and much more.
We thank them for their generosity of time and spirit and welcome Wendy Plottel, our Special Events Chair, as our new trainer.
