Jewish Philanthropies of Southern Arizona is seeking its next CEO!
Tucson’s growing Jewish community, currently estimated to be around 30,000 strong, is a welcoming, collaborative, and cohesive community. To a great degree, these attributes result from the longtime efforts of two Southern Arizona Jewish organizations, the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona (JFSA) and the Jewish Community Foundation of Southern Arizona (JCF). In May 2021, JFSA and JCF together formed Jewish Philanthropies of Southern Arizona (JPSA), to leverage their respective strengths and maximize their positive impacts.
The JPSA CEO is a leader in the Jewish and broader communities and must be informed about Jewish traditions and values. At the same time, the CEO must be able to lead the community in preserving its successful attributes while introducing positive changes essential to elevate Jewish life in Southern Arizona. The CEO is expected and encouraged to be an active participant in Jewish communal life and to represent the Jewish community in the general community.
