The new board’s officers include Chair Jonathan Hoffer, who is also vice chair of the JCA board; Vice Chair Bob Silver; Secretary and Treasurer Joel Kramerand; JCA President & CEO Stuart Wachs.

Other members include Kristina Brown, Dan Sheinert, Sara Schneider and Gary Weiss.

“We have a beautiful facility and great staff, but we’ve been missing an organized group of lay leaders engaged in setting strategy and goals to make The J best it can be,” said Mr. Hoffer.

“The formation of this board, and the committees that evolve from it, are a call to action for those people with a vision and a passion for The J and the community.”

The board is charged with increasing volunteer involvement, membership and financial support of at The J, as well as its relevancy among the Jewish and non-Jewish communities.

“We felt it was time to have a group of lay leaders who are passionate about advancing the vibrancy of The J,” said Mr. Wachs. “I look forward to working with the board to create one of the most vibrant JCCs in the country.”

The J is located at 12701 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale.
