It's All Perspective

I am trying to use MetroImma to the best advantage, I really am. I am hoping you can help me. I would like to see who from my contacts is already on metroimma so I can "friend" them, without having to send invites to people that are not on MetroImma already. Is that possible? I would love some advice. Thanks!

I love the pics of your kids, and was so interested to read about you I have also helped start two non-profit organizations for Jewish Arts. I am on the board of ATARA, the Arts and Torah Association, we are having our annual conference on the Upper West Side this November 12 -14. It is an all women's event, hope you can come and let people know. Our web is www.artsandtorah.org, our conference is for Jewish women doing Torah inspired performing arts.
