I enjoy being connected to the Los Angeles Jewish community through my involvement as a Foundation trustee.  I’ve been in the financial services business in one form or another for over 25 years and it is rewarding to be able to share what I have learned for the benefit of the community.  It’s great being able to make an impact and effect positive change.
