CEO Search Update
We are pleased to provide you with an update on the progress of the JF&CS CEO Search. 

Our team at Isaacson, Miller, led by Stephanie Fidel and Ben Tobin, has reached out to many sources, referrals, and prospective candidates. In early July, the team presented candidate resumes to the CEO Search Committee. These candidates represented a variety of for-profit and non-profit sectors, backgrounds in healthcare, Jewish communal organizations, higher education, advocacy, and social service agencies, as well as diversity in gender and cultural background. Candidates were both local and from different parts of the country. 

Stephanie and Ben have shared with us that there is great enthusiasm for this role. Our agency and community have stellar reputations among the network of Jewish organizations across the country, and this role is viewed as a prime position. 

The Search Committee narrowed the field down for the next round of interviews with Isaacson, Miller. The Search Team will continue their outreach. We will meet again in mid-August, during which time the Search Committee will share more details on experience, expertise, and relevant accomplishments. Our timeframe includes in-person interviews in early September with semi-finalist candidates.

We are grateful to many of you who have reached out to us and to Isaacson, Miller with candidate recommendations. We welcome candidate recommendations from the community. Every candidate is vetted through a fair and objective lens. 

Nominations and applications, including - as individual attachments - a cover letter; a resume; and a list of references, should be submitted online:

This is a critical moment in our agency's history. We are fortunate to have Carl Zack as our Interim CEO, who is leading the agency with a firm and steady hand and a heart that cares deeply about every client we serve. Carl is committed to his role until a new CEO is on board. We will continue to keep you informed as the search unfolds.
