“Kim comes to us with extensive programmatic and department leadership experience in preschool, youth and camping and has an amazing passion for our community and The J,” said Mr. Wachs.

“We had a number of very qualified candidates who went through an extensive interview process with senior staff, department heads and J lay leaders. While other candidates where very strong, Kim was the clear choice to help continue The J’s path of growth and success.”

Ms. Subrin was hired after an extensive national search. Local and national candidates were considered. Her proven track record in creative and quality program development and delivery are key to meeting The J’s mission and vision to enhance and serve our community.

“I am thrilled to return to the Valley of the Sun Jewish Community Center. With more than 15 years in the Greater Phoenix Jewish community, I am excited to once again re-engage our community in Jewish life, learning and fun,” Ms. Subrin said.

“I look forward to providing new adventures and opportunities for our entire community and to creating meaningful and lasting memories for all whom enter The J.”

Ms. Subrin has more than 20 years of experience developing programs and fostering relationship and engagement within Jewish communities.

She most recently served as director of the Congregation Beth Israel’s Chanen Preschool. She also served as The J’s program and camp director from 2004 to 2008 and as its youth and camp director from 2000 to 2004.
