Births

Sari and Matt Kaplan welcomed their third baby girl, Maisie Juliette Kaplan, on Jan. 11, 2024. Maisie was born in San Francisco weighing 6 lbs., 9 oz. and measuring 19 inches. Maisie joins sisters Mackenzie and Maya, who were overwhelmed with excitement to meet a new little sister in the family. Proud grandparents are the late Dr. Jeffrey Bourne and the late Mickey Naggar Bourne, a past leader at Jewish LearningWorks (previously the Bureau of Jewish Education), and Jana and the late Kenneth Kaplan.

Micah and Joshua Siva are proud to announce the birth of their son, Ari Julian Siva, born on Nov. 29, 2023. Ari joined the family early but just in time for Hanukkah. Named after his great-grandfathers, Arnold Grobman and Louis Epstein (Hebrew name Ari), and late grandfather Julian, he is welcomed to the world by his grandparents, Alyson and Barry Grobman of Calgary, Canada, and Sue Siva of Buffalo, New York.
