JFS 2011 Annual Meeting Celebrates Accomplishments, Looks Ahead

Laurence I. Blair begins third year as JFS Chair, Danielle N. Hartman starts second year as CEO

Nearly 200 enthusiastic Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service fans gathered on May 3 at the Shirley & Barton Weisman Delray Community Center, for the agency’s 2011 Annual Meeting. While they enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, the clear attractions were installing the new Board of Directors, and the opportunity to recognize the collective efforts of the volunteers, supporters, staff and board who ensure JFS’s success. Chaired by Laura Litinsky and Jane Gortz and emceed by Arnie Friedman, the evening celebrated the year’s accomplishments with a video slideshow by Emily Grabelsky, and looked ahead to a bright future.

“We’ve made great strides toward the goals we set last year, with a long and impressive list of programs and services that we continue to refine and enhance to best meet the needs of our community,” said Danielle N. Hartman, on completing her first year as JFS President & CEO. “Opening the Shirley & Barton Weisman Delray Community Center last November was a momentous occasion that opened doors to much needed diverse opportunities for learning, socializing and more.

“This year we’ve also added psychiatry and psychological testing to our clinical services, and started the Caring Doctors Program for those who cannot afford essential health care,” Hartman continued. “We’ve also made internal improvements including rebranding our image and leveraging partnerships with other community organizations.”

The 2011-2012 JFS Board of Directors slate was approved, and members installed, with Laurence I. Blair beginning a third year as Chair.

“We are very proud of our achievements this year and the progress we have made as an agency,” said Blair. “Amid continuing widespread economic challenges, we’ve provided exemplary service to a greater number of clients with a smaller budget. This is a testament to the generous, committed efforts of our volunteers and lay leaders. Our more than 300 volunteers have continued their critical role, providing over 25,000 hours of service in the community during the past year. “

Among others installed were those who will now serve on the JFS Board’s Executive Committee: Judi Donoff, Vice Chair Financial Resource Development; Ron Gallatin, Vice Chair Strategic Planning; Lisa Goodman, Vice Chair Food Pantry; Roger Leavy, Vice Chair Personnel; Kenneth Pritzker, Vice Chair Board Development; Jon Kimmel, Treasurer; Natalie Pelavin, Secretary; Ellen R. Sarnoff, Chair, Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County; Jill Viner and Bart Weisman.

Also installed were Ivan Gefen, Nominating Committee Chair and Immediate Past Board Chair; Danielle N. Hartman, President & CEO; Carol Dickman, Leonard Epstien, Beverly Feurring, Sheila Furr, Rebecca Greenspoon, Talia Klein, Rabbi Dan Levin, Roxane Frechie Lipton, Robin Struhl and Drew Waldman.  Charles Cohen, Norman Rales and Gavin Robin became Honorary Board Members.

Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service (JFS) offers help, hope and humanity through a comprehensive range of programs and services which support people of all ages and beliefs. With locations in Boca Raton and Delray Beach, JFS programs and services include food and financial assistance, senior services, counseling and mental health services and many volunteer opportunities. Funding is provided by private and corporate support, grants, special events and individuals who reach thousands in need each year.
