The Jewish Federation & Foundation of Rockland County is pleased to announce that eight members of Rockland’s Jewish community are joining Federation’s 2018-2019 Board of Directors.
Roberta Aaronson, Nominating Committee Chair and Past President, introduced six of the new board members at Federation’s Annual Meeting on June 7. Two additional board members, Marcy Pressman and Andrew Eisen, joined the board shortly after the Annual Meeting.
As a new member of the Board of Directors, Rabbi Benjamin Sharff (first on left) says he is “looking forward to finding more ways for the Rockland Jewish community to build a greater sense of collaboration, cooperation and engagement with the congregations and organizations that serve the community.”
Dawn Portney (third from left) said that “Federation sounds like a wonderful place to volunteer and give back to not only the Jewish community but all agencies that benefit from Federation’s work.”
Stephen Cohn, Rockland Federation’s incoming Co-President, assisted CEO Gary Siepser in bringing the new members on board. Says Cohn, “This is a great group of committed young leaders who are joining Rockland Federation. I look forward to working with the entire Board of Directors over the next year in my new role as Co-President.”
