Three area leaders have been appointed to positions at Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County:

“We are delighted to have these three impactful and well-respected community leaders take on these new positions with Federation,” says Arthur Loring, board chair of Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County. “The deep and meaningful experience they bring adds wisdom to our organization – and, therefore, this Jewish community. We are lucky to have them on the team.”


Barry Berg was appointed as the Annual Campaign Chair.

Mr. Berg will oversee campaign strategy, community solicitation and work to strengthen the Annual Campaign infrastructure to ensure future growth. He will also lead the implementation and organization of the new Campaign Cabinet, which consists of 30 experienced community leaders. He has been involved with the Federation since the early 1980s and has sat on the Board of Directors for more than 10 years.


Cynthia R. Brown was installed as Chair of the Women’s Philanthropy Board.

Mrs. Brown will ensure Women's Philanthropy's mission and goals are in accordance with Federation's guidelines.  She has been on the board for several years, previously serving as chair and original trustee of Jewish Women's Foundation (JWF).  She has held several key leadership positions with Women’s Philanthropy, most recently as chair of a committee dedicated to aligning JWF's guiding principles with those of Federation.


Libby Fishman has begun serving as Chair of the Community Planning and Investments Committee.

Mrs. Fishman's top priority is to focus on evaluations-based decisions for funding that emphasizes big-picture strategic community planning.
