Holly Mauskopf is Rockland Federation’s new Campaign Director. She is responsible for solicitation strategies, donor cultivation events and other programs that meet Federation’s annual campaign goals.
Three years ago, Holly and her family attended Federation’s Shalom Rockland event and decided then to make
Rockland their home. She is a CPA who has worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers and other investment management firms in New York City. Holly served on the working committee and board of the Rockland Jewish Academy Foundation and is excited to be working for Federation. “I can finally merge my extensive professional experience with my commitment to the Rockland community and the Jewish people at large,” says Holly.
Lara Epstein is Rockland Federation’s new Director of Community Outreach and Engagement. She runs Federation’s PJ Library program which provides free Jewish books and music to young children as well as our Leadership Development Institute (LDI). Lara is also responsible for all outreach efforts that enhance Rockland Federation’s visibility in the community.
Before joining Federation, Lara was a stay-at-home mother who volunteered for both the Rockland Jewish Academy and her synagogue, Congregation Sons of Israel in Nyack. Previously, she worked in the I.T. department of a large investment bank. Lara is pleased to be working for Rockland Federation, which allows her to continue to be involved in the local Jewish community, and beyond. Says Lara, “Not only is working for JFRC personally rewarding, but it is something that I can share with my two young daughters. I hope to teach by example.”
