Natalie and Josh Adler married on May 4, 2019, at Plum Street Temple in front of their families and closest friends.
They are both huge Star Wars fans so they chose the date accordingly – “May the 4th be with you.”
Rabbi Michael Danziger of Wise Temple officiated their intimate ceremony after a beautiful Havdalah service and Ketubah signing.
Natalie is the daughter of Kenneth and the late Kathleen Morrison of Ripley, Ohio.
Josh is the son of Craig Adler and Tammy Foeller of Columbus. Robert Foeller is his stepfather. His grandparents are Marty Adler, Barbara Scott, Paula Nevins and the late Norman Nevins.
Josh is originally from Bexley, Ohio, and moved to Cincinnati to attend the University of Cincinnati where he earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in operations management. He is a business analyst at a software company, PCMS Datafit.
Natalie attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology. She also attended Amberton University earning a Master of Science in human relations and business. Natalie is a business analyst at Fifth Third Bank in Cincinnati, specializing in employee training and development.
Josh previously worked for Fifth Third Banks where the couple met.
Together and independently, they have embraced the Cincinnati Jewish community and become active in several organizations. The newlyweds are ambassadors through Cincinnati Vine.
Natalie is a religious school teacher and a member of the NextGen Committee for Wise Temple. The NextGen committee helps plan and organize events for Jews in their twenties and thirties.
The Adlers are passionate about being involved in the young Jewish community. They love connecting with others over Jewish values and interests and incorporating their values into their home. Passover and Shabbat are their favorite holidays.
The couple also enjoys spending time with their 3 dogs (Nico, Taco & Chloe), traveling, and coming together with friends and family for game nights.
Leo Webber, son of Melissa and Daniel Webber, grandson of Renee and Michael Skolnick of Cincinnati and Susan Webber of Charlotte, North Carolina, was chosen to be a youth ambassador for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) Southwest Ohio.
This is a competitive program that chooses children who are a good example of living with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Diagnosed at age 4, he’s now a first grader at Montgomery Elementary of Sycamore Schools and attends Adath Israel Congregation’s Sunday School where the family belongs.
Leo works hard to support fundraising efforts toward the goal of finding a cure as well as better ways of treating and preventing the disease. He educates the community about T1D by sharing his experiences of what it is like to live with the disease. Leo speaks to businesses, schools, and hospitals, as well as participates in JDRF sanctioned local outreach events to raise support and awareness of type 1 diabetes throughout the community.
“My pancreas doesn’t deliver insulin to my body,” explains Leo. “I have to give myself insulin, and I get to eat candy when my blood sugar is low. Diabetes never stops me, and I can do everything that all of my friends do!”
Leo is one of an estimated 30,800 residents of the southwest Ohio area who live with T1D, an autoimmune disease where the body destroys its own insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. It can strike anyone at any age and at any time.
This is Leo’s second time serving as a youth ambassador. The whole Webber family including Leo’s 3 years old brother, Jack, is very involved in JDRF. Melissa Webber volunteers on several different committees. They walk in JDRF One Walk at Kings Island with their team “Webber’s Wrecking Crew.”
Leo attends the JDRF Gala at Duke Energy Convention Center where he helps raise money. He will once again attend the gala in May. He occasionally volunteers at the JDRF office assisting with tasks such as handing out One Walk T-shirts, making posters for JDRF Ride to Cure participants, packaging boxes of hope for newly diagnosed kids, and assembling name tags for the Type One Nation Summit.
