Experience

Executive Director

JEWISH FRIENDS OF THE CANADIAN ARMED FORCES

March 2008 – Present (9 years 8 months)

The Jewish Friends of the Canadian Armed Forces (JFCAF) operates one of Canada’s largest networks of non-sectarian educational and social service programs. 
These grassroots programs proudly reach out and assist military personnel regardless of background or belief.
While our military men and women, whether serving on military bases in any of the Provinces or around the world, courageously fight the physical war, the JFCAF offers help to fight their ‘spiritual war’. 
We offer those in the military and their families spiritual guidance, counseling and try to provide answers to some of life’s most perplexing questions.
JFCAF lifts the troops spirits no matter where they are stationed, bringing entertainment for our troops all year-round – enabling all personnel to experience a bit of home, a smile and spiritual uplifting.
JFCAF also works with chaplains of all faiths to accommodate the needs of Jewish members of the military related to Jewish holiday leaves and other religious opportunities such as ‘mazel tov’ family occasions. 
For all members of the military and their families who might benefit from learning about Jewish history, heritage and holidays, JFCAF provides traditional foods and refreshers.
JFCAF is not affiliated with the Armed Forces. It is a non-profit social service organization.
