It's with pride & gratitude that we announce Jeri Mendelsohn will be retiring as CEO of the Samuel Field Y and Central Queens Y effective June 30, 2017. Under Jeri’s guidance, we've made our agencies a center for all members of the community, including a special emphasis on our most vulnerable. As we go forward together, Danielle Ellman, a dynamic, innovative and exceptionally talented professional, will be appointed as President & CEO. Aaron Rosenfeld, a skilled, experienced and accomplished Jewish communal professional, will become the EVP & COO. Please join us in thanking and congratulating Jeri. We’re very proud for what we've accomplished recently, and we’re excited for the future.
