Prior to that experience, Jeff served as the Deputy Clerk of the Legislature as well as managed various political campaigns in the Rochester, New York area.
In 2008, Jeff transitioned from government work to the Jewish professional world becoming the Young Leadership Director for the Rochester Jewish Federation where he was tasked with getting young adults involved in Federation initiatives and Jewish life. Additionally, Jeff led the Federations annual Super Sunday fundraiser and served on the financial resource development team.
Jeff’s firm belief in Kol Yisrael arevim zeh la-zeh (all Jews are responsible for one another) and tzedakah was inspired from his grandparents who were educators and leaders in their respective Jewish communities.
