Member Highlight
Aladdin's Eatery
From their website:
"Fady Chamoun arrived in the US from Lebanon in 1972 with a dream of opening a restaurant featuring healthy Lebanese fare. In 1994 Fady and his wife Sally opened the first Aladdin’s Eatery in Lakewood, Ohio. Inspired by the belief that “food is a philosophy,” Fady made educating his guests about the restaurant’s unique cuisine his foremost passion. So Aladdin’s began with perfecting the basics like hummus, falafel, and shish kabob, and introducing new items with a focus on healthier Lebanese foods. The restaurant’s popularity took hold; soon the second Aladdin’s Eatery opened in Cleveland Heights.
Over the past three decades, Aladdin’s Eatery has grown to include more than 30 locations providing healthy Lebanese-American cuisine to guests in four states. Our menu continues to evolve in order to cater to our guests’ increasing awareness of health and nutrition."

Rosen-Jones Photography
From their website:
"Tanya Rosen-Jones grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and learned to love photography and natural light at an early age.
Tanya studied photography and history at Oberlin College, where she also happened to meet the love of her life. Tanya honed her photography skills via continuing education at UC Berkeley and the Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt).
“It is quite an honor to be a part of my clients’ lives through so many important stages,” she notes. “Engagements, weddings, pregnancies, babies, kids growing up, high school graduation portraits… I simply love watching my clients grow.”
After ten years in the Boston area, Tanya and her family moved back to Oberlin, Ohio in 2008 – a place that they all now call home."
