Welcome To The Upside

Welcome to “The Upside,” a community-wide, online program presented by The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore and Jmore.


For the last year, hosts Beth Goldsmith and Scott Rifkin have virtually sat down with some of Maryland’s most respected experts in their fields to answer your questions about the things that matter most. We’ve covered medical matters and financial matters, sought advice on home-schooling your children and how to manage your mental health during the pandemic.

We finished wrapping up our first season in April, and look forward to returning to The Upside later this year. Be on the lookout as we introduce our show in a new format, but with the same great people!

Co-hosted by Beth H. Goldsmith, Chair of the Board for The Associated, and Dr. Scott Rifkin, Publisher of Jmore.
