Former Shames JCC General Manager and lifelong JCC affiliate, Leslie Meyers, has been appointed as the Executive Director of the Harold & Elaine Shames JCC on the Hudson.
Leslie’s deep knowledge of the Jewish community combined with her passion for leadership and community building makes her the ideal candidate at this time.
Ms. Meyers comes to the Shames JCC on the Hudson with 20+ years of experience, having worked for the 92nd Street Y, the Oshman Family JCC in Palo Alto, and most recently, at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades. She grew up in JCCs and spent much of her youth in Jewish camps, B’nai Brith Youth Organization, and in Israel. Ms. Meyers will begin her tenure as the Executive Director of the Shames JCC on September 3rd.
Leslie’s appointment marks an important and exciting milestone in the evolution of the JCC. Since we launched the new facility two years ago, we have experienced tremendous growth in our membership and the quality of new programming that we are able to offer. With Leslie’s arrival, we are in an excellent position to evaluate our services, incorporate feedback from you, our community, and continue to build the JCC into a pre-eminent organization.
We are planning a series of events in the fall to welcome Ms. Meyers and provide you with opportunities to meet with her and share your ideas, which Ms. Meyers is eager to hear. Please check our website in the near future for details about these events.
