The Jewish Community Foundation of Greater MetroWest NJ works to fulfill the cherished Jewish precepts of tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (repairing the world) by managing the charitable funds of our donors and working with them to inspire additional philanthropic, ongoing support for community needs in Greater MetroWest NJ, Israel and around the world for today and tomorrow.

We value the opportunities afforded by this work, which allows our donors to be active participants in the ongoing process of creating a more perfect world.

Leon Cooperman and David Rocker in “Conversation”

In October, JCF’s Professional Advisor’s Network (PAN) presented “A Conversation on the Investment Outlook and Philanthropy with Lee Cooperman and David Rocker,” an evening program chaired by Michael Schechner and moderated by Peter Langerman. Eugenia Yudanin is chair of the PAN Committee, and serves with Michael and Peter on the JCF Board of Trustees.

It was an informative, engaging, entertaining, and deeply inspiring program with two pillars of the investment community. Both the Cooperman and Rocker families have deep roots in our Greater MetroWest community and we are grateful for the trust they have placed in JCF.  As Lee reminded us, the Talmud states that “A man’s net worth is measured not by what he earns but rather what he gives away.”
