About us

Our Mission

Be the pioneer organization in Kansas City that builds a bridge between everything KC has to offer and the growing community of Jewish (and Jew-ish) 20-30 somethings. We aim to inspire, guide and motivate our people to embrace what they love about Kansas City and Jewish life.

Molly Hess
our People

Meet Molly Hess, she is a transplant from San Diego, who 7 years ago moved to Kansas City on a whim, following her gut, intuition, and a boy. After six years of working at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Molly decided it was time for a new challenge and leaned into working in the Jewish community. Molly has a MA in Art History and spends her time off cooking, traveling, and hanging with the coolest pooch around #RodgerHess; her husband Jon (the boy) is pretty cool, too. With a passion for meeting new people and introducing them to the city she has fallen in love with, Molly loves the work she does and looks forward to connecting with you soon.
