VOSJCC hires Kim Subrin as managing director

The Valley of the Sun Jewish Community Center has hired Kim Subrin as its managing director to provide guidance and support to J departments. Along with J President and CEO Stuart Wachs, Kim will provide the face of leadership for J members and the community.

“Kim comes to us with extensive programmatic and department leadership experience in preschool, youth and camping, and has an amazing passion for our community and The J,” says Stuart. “We had a number of very qualified candidates who went through an extensive interview process with senior staff, department heads and J lay leaders.”

I look forward to providing new adventures and opportunities for our entire community.”

Arizona JNF Welcomes Toni Dusik as Board President

Toni Dusik has become board president of Arizona’s Jewish National Fund just as JNF’s lay leadership and professional team begin to implement JNF’s $1 Billion Road Map for the Next Decade campaign. Toni will be instrumental in helping JNF connect Arizona to the people and land of Israel, and execute projects to strengthen Israel for the long-term.

“I am honored to serve JNF in this exciting, new capacity,” says Toni, who has been on JNF’s Arizona board for eight years. “I love Israel. I love the people and the land, and cannot stress enough the importance of continuing to support JNF, an organization that works to better the lives of all Israelis and is committed to developing and bettering the land of Israel.”

Toni’s first JNF trip to Israel was with the Queen of Sheba mission, an unforgettable journey for women only. The mission invigorated her passion and commitment as she bonded with the women on the trip and learned about JNF’s many projects in Israel. She will co-chair the November 2016 Queen of Sheba mission. Toni is a member of JNF’s Makor, leaders who provide resources, training and inspiration to other JNF lay leaders, and the Go North Taskforce. She is also on the executive board of the national women’s campaign and is a member of the Sapphire Society and Century Council.

Arizona Director Deb Rochford says, “Toni is an invaluable asset to the JNF family. Her impressive leadership skills and passion for Israel make for the perfect board president.”

Toni looks forward to educating the community about the projects JNF is involved with in Israel and how the work done locally in Arizona affects the lives of all Israelis.

Toni has an incredibly supportive husband, Milan, who is proud of the time she dedicates to JNF, and two grown sons, a daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. |
