Mazal Tov to Adina Kanefield
December 1, 2016 by
Dear JPDS-NC community,
I want to let you know that Adina Kanefield will be leaving her position as Director of Institutional Advancement to take a new position as the Deputy Director of the Edlavitch DCJCC. Adina has been a leader and partner with me, the Board, and our entire community on so many of our strategic initiatives related to the school’s growth and success. I am sad to see her leave her position, but I take pride in her growth as a leader for the community and I know that her legacy here will remain strong and allow us to continue building upon the foundation that she created here. She has been a fighter for a vibrant Jewish life in the nation’s capital, and has helped position JPDS-NC as a pillar of Jewish life in Washington, DC. Her good work for the Jewish community will continue, and I look forward to partnering with her in the future.
Adina will leave January 1, but she will be available to us in the transition. As we address this staff change in the interim, the Advancement Office team will continue their excellent outreach work in partnership with the Board, parent volunteers, and myself.
We will have the opportunity to wish Adina well and to honor her at the Purim Ball this year. For now, please join me in thanking Adina for her good work for JPDS-NC and in wishing her much success in her new endeavor. Below is a note that Adina has shared with me about her exciting new opportunity.
