JMM Insights: Celebrating JMM’s New Board Members


This week’s edition of JMM Insights comes from Director of Development Tracey Dorfmann.

This was a transformational year for JMM and our Board of Trustees. Our new Executive Director, Sol Davis led the way as we focused on expanding meaningful relationships in all aspects of our work. To guide us in the important effort of being a participatory museum, we established board development goals to deepen our existing relationships, foster greater engagement with new audiences, and amplify the many voices of our community. 

On May 20th, the JMM Membership approved a Board slate to carry us into our new fiscal year and beyond. Effective July 1, 2021, we are delighted to welcome several new members to our Board of Trustees. Collectively they bring strong backgrounds in tax, business and corporate law, finance, Jewish scholarship, community activism, and Jewish engagement.

Please join us in welcoming, Jordan Halle, Paul Levin, Jill Max, Abba Poliakoff, and Dr. Harriette Wimms. Together with our existing officers and board, they will help us blaze the trail forward.

Our Board members participate in museum life in a myriad of ways. They are steadfast supporters of our mission and act as JMM Ambassadors. They council and oversee Museum finances and strategy, serve on a variety of committees, enthusiastically welcome museum visitors, and introduce programs and speakers many times during the program year.

We gratefully acknowledge our entire Board for providing the experience, leadership, diverse views, and expertise that will to help us address the challenges of today and identify new opportunities for our future.

Together we will go from strength to strength.
