An online community for Jewish moms

About Us

MetroImma began its life in the Jodi Samuels lounge. Jodi & Allen were talking, that while there are many mom sites, none address the specific needs and desires of Jewish mothers. Jodi and Allen have been long time family friends and after sharing many beers on a beach, they decided to start a site that provides a Jewish twist to the standard areas that interest moms and that's how the professionals that bring you MetroImma united. The team brings attitude, passion for city living and extra-ordinary marketing skills to MetroImma!

Our vision is to be the destination site for Jewish Mom’s to socialize, connect and network. We will provide the platform, the tips, the resources and you create a community.

About is a one of a kind social networking site that focuses on the Jewish cultural aspects of marriage, parenting and raising children. With an initial focus on the New York area, MetroImma plans to provide active forums featuring other cities. What makes MetroImma unique is that it offers a Jewish twist to the standard areas that interest moms – schools, cooking, beauty, fitness, travel with children, juggling marriage and children, and other general childrearing issues. The site is organized across mommy-focused groups that are run by subject matter experts who moderate discussions and provide advice. Members can also initiate their own groups and conversations and keep in touch with other mom friends in a fun and user-friendly environment. MetroImma is a division of JMedia Connections Inc.
