The Jewish Federation of San Diego County is pleased to announce that Heather Wolfson has been appointed Senior Director of Community Partnerships. She will work closely with the CEO, Board of Directors, partners and Federation staff to implement mission-driven initiatives in three strategic areas: building a vibrant and long-lasting Jewish community for future generations, broadening and deepening connections to Jewish life in San Diego, and transforming San Diego into one of the most welcoming, all-inclusive, caring, and connected Jewish communities. Heather will lead Federation’s Community Teen Initiative, NextGen young adult outreach, Aging in Community program, Shalom San Diego initiative, and Israel and Overseas program.
Outside of work, Heather is an active and involved community member. She is currently a member of the ROI community, serves on a handful of community committees, and has participated in the Emma and Jeremiah (Progressive Jewish Alliance/Bend the Arc) Fellowship program. When Heather isn’t serving the San Diego Jewish community, she can be found spending time with her husband, two children, and extended family.
“As a mother of two young boys, creating a strong, vibrant, caring, and connected Jewish community is extremely important to me,” said Heather. “San Diego is home to me, and as I raise my children – imparting Jewish identity, education, and values – I want my kids to have a strong and supportive Jewish community to grow up in and to become members of.”
