Julia Rosenfeld and her family

Each month we’ll be highlighting a member of the Contemporary Club of Ho-Ho-Kus through a member profile here in the Blog section of our website.  These posts allow us to learn more about the women who comprise our club, providing a snapshot of their interests, family and life. You may discover that you worked at the same company or that you love the same restaurant for date night.  Enjoy!

1.  What is/was your profession?

Before having my kids, I was an elementary school teacher. I taught 3rd and 4th grades in the New York City public school system. I haven’t decided yet whether I’ll go back to teaching when/if I re-enter the work force, or try something completely new.

2.  What made you decide to join the Contemporary Club? What has your favorite part been thus far?

I decided to join the club when we bought our second house in HHK. We weren’t sure until then that we would stay in town, and I think I sort of had one foot out the door. I’m sorry now that I waited so long! My favorite part has been the friends my husband and I have made.

3.  How do you like living in HHK? Where did you live previously?

We love living here. Especially now that my two oldest are in the elementary school, I appreciate the strong sense of community. There are so many different ways to get involved, and I feel like I have a network of moms around me who are always willing to help one another out. Before moving to HHK we lived in Manhattan for 5 years.

4.  What is/are your favorite local restaurant(s) for dining: a. with your family  b. for date night/girls night out?

We try to switch it up with restaurants, but my kids always want to go to Baumgart’s in Ridgewood. I think it’s the homemade ice cream. For an adult night out, we recently had fun nights at Finca and Roots, both in Ridgewood.

5.  What are you most looking forward to this Spring?

I’m really looking forward to sending my very rambunctious boys outside to play! I love how in the nice weather we can go right outside and inevitably one of my kids’ friends will come by to play. We have a great neighborhood full of kids and my children are never bored for long.

6.  Tell us 2 truths and 1 lie about yourself….

  • My husband and I met on a Disney cruise
  • I was once a member of a synchronized swimming team
  • I have an impressive collection of stuffed animal moose.
