Message from the Board of Trustees

Jewish Family Service of Bergen and North Hudson (JFS) Board of Trustees is proud to announce the appointment of Susan Greenbaum, LCSW as its new Executive Director. Susan is a long time Teaneck resident and well known within the community. She brings many years of experience in the non-profit sector to JFS. Susan previously led the Shimon & Sara Birnbaum JCC in Bridgewater, New Jersey and the Kingsbay YM-YWHA in Brooklyn, New York. The Board and staff are confident that under her leadership JFS will prosper with new and exciting services for the community and families in need.

Geoffrey Lewis, President of JFS says “We are excited that Susan has agreed to join JFS. We believe her long background in both JCC and social work fields will help direct JFS as we move forward in the challenging times that not-for-profit organizations face”.

“I feel enormously privileged to take on this role at JFS” says Susan Greenbaum. “I look forward to working with leadership and staff to grow our agency and to increase the impact of our services to children, adults and families. Most exciting for me is the opportunity to make a difference in my home community and to work again among all of the organizations that make up the fabric of the Jewish community in Bergen County”.
