Judith is a Californian. Born in San Francisco, attending grammar school and high school in West Los Angeles, she has spent the rest of her life in Berkeley. She has been involved in Jewish community building since her teenage years as a board member of her temple youth group. A retired Certified Public Accountant, she has tried to share her skills and knowledge with the community as a board member of the East Bay Jewish Federation, president of Berkeley chapter of Hadassah, treasurer of Young Judea and Camp Young Judea West and a very early member of Congregation Beth Israel. In addition to her Jewish community commitments, Judith is the treasurer of both Bay Area Community Services and the Berkeley Holiday Fund. For the last ten years, she has spent two days a week with kindergartners in the Berkeley Public Schools. Judith is deeply committed to Hasidah’s mission as she is Bubby to three beautiful grandchildren, now adults, who are an important part of her life because of the availability of infertility treatments.
