 I am very proud of my involvement with the Rose Community Foundation where I serve as a trustee.  I chaired the Foundation’s Jewish Life Committee, of which I am still a member.  I am also a member of the Child and Family Development Committee, and serve as chair of the Philanthropic Services Committee.   I am most proud of the Rose Youth Foundation, a teen philanthropy program that engages youth in philanthropy and in the Jewish community.  Participants learn about Jewish values and our tradition of giving.  They study the community needs, and learn about strategic philanthropy.  They then create grant priorities, review proposals, conduct site visits, and grant funds as they see needed.   I am also a board member of RedLine, a diverse urban laboratory where art education and community converge.  RedLine engages people in unique art experiences.  It is a place where renowned artists, emerging artists, homeless artists and young artists have a place to engage and create their own art.   I am very proud that the first international RedLine will open in Beer Sheva, Israel   I am married to Ar.   We have 2 children, Ron and Dana,  and 3 grandchildren Gabrielle, Alexa and Gilad.
