Commissioner Melinda Kane joined the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey (JFSNJ) for a Shabbat dinner on Friday, June 2nd to honor the organization’s Chief Executive Officer, Jennifer Dubrow Weiss, who is celebrating 10 years in the position.
“Jennifer has accomplished so much with JFSNJ over the last decade and her hard work and dedication deserves to be celebrated,” Kane said. “Weiss truly worked from the ground up, beginning as an intern for JFSNJ, moving up until ultimately becoming CEO 10 years ago. Since then, she has been serving the Jewish community here in South Jersey and I cannot wait to see what she will accomplish in the next 10 years.”
Jennifer Dubrow Weiss began her career as an intern at JFSNJ’s agency, Samost Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JFCS). After graduating with a master’s degree in social work from Temple University, she stayed on with JFCS as a geriatric social worker and stayed with the agency for over 20 years in several roles. She became CEO of JFSNJ in 2012. 
During the last decade Weiss and her team have launched numerous initiatives and services for the community, including Aleph Home Care, Aleph Adult Day Center and Weinberg Commons, an affordable housing community with 160 apartment units for older adults and adults with special needs with onsite support services.
