Jewish Federation of Greater Nashville Welcomes New CEO at Annual Meeting

The Jewish Federation of Greater Nashville welcomed incoming CEO Rabbi Dan Horwitz at this year’s annual meeting held last month. Horwitz, who will move with his family to Nashville for an August 1 start date, said he is looking forward to becoming part of the community. “Our tradition has no shortage of leaders to draw inspiration from,” he said. Becca Groner was honored with the Sandy Averbuch Young Leader Award. She said, “I feel like I just won the Jewish Oscars. But seriously, I feel a true sense of belonging among the southern Jewish community.”

Leslie Kirby, who is continuing as president of the Federation, expressed appreciation for the staff who helped keep the organization moving forward during a challenging and atypical year. “Each and every one of them stepped up, pitched in, and done what was needed. In a time of tremendous uncertainty, they showed perseverance and dedication to the mission of the Federation. I and our entire community owe them a debt of gratitude.”

Kirby was installed as the continuing President, along with this year’s officers: Aron Karabel, Vice President, Christie Wiemers, Secretary, Jacob Kleinrock, Treasurer. New members at large are Arlene Averbuch, Rabbi Lindsay Danziger, Ori Hart, Jason Sparks.
