Julie, current Board Chair of the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, has held top leadership roles within the Los Angeles community for many years. Prior to being named Chair of the Board, she served as General Campaign Chair and was previously Chair of our Federation’s Ensuring the Jewish Future Strategic Initiative. Julie is a member of the Executive Committee of the Jewish Federations of North America. Julie’s lifelong connection with the Jewish community began at Camp Ramah in Ojai, and today she’s a driving force in raising funds to subsidize tuition for Jewish summer camps, allowing more families to afford this transformative experience for their children. Julie currently serves as Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors of Foundation for Jewish Camp, and is also member of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees. Outside of the Jewish world, Julie is actively involved with, and an avid supporter of, the University of Pennsylvania, where she graduated and met her husband, Marc.
