Jacqueline L. Herman of Englewood has been appointed the new president of One Israel Fund’s board of trustees. The globally recognized organization provides humanitarian support and essential needs for West Bank residents. Ms. Herman has been a dedicated member of the organization’s board of trustees for many years and has worked tirelessly to raise funds for a variety of the organization’s important projects.
Mrs. Herman became president of the board in October as its immediate past president, Jonathan L. Sherman, became a trustee at large. Mr. Sherman presided over the organization’s growth over the last several years and raised much needed resources for its community, security, medical, educational, and recreational programming. Under his leadership, the organization began construction of the Binyamin Medical Center, a primary urgent care and general medical center serving the medical needs of the 128,000 residents of the Binyamin region, the largest regional council in Israel.
One Israel Fund’s executive vice president, Scott M. Feltman, said, “Jacqui has been an outstanding member of our board of trustees, constantly seeking out opportunities to help enhance our organization’s programming and fundraising infrastructure. She has been a pleasure to work with all these years as a trustee; and we are truly honored to officially have her serving as our new president. Everyone is very excited to work with her in building this organization to even higher heights.”
“I am extremely excited about this new chapter in my service to One Israel Fund, an organization I feel incredibly proud to have been a part of for so many years,” Ms. Herman said. “The organization’s mission is one my family and I consider to be of vital importance and I look forward to working with Scott, his staff, and our wonderful board of trustees and board of directors to continue providing for the essential needs of the residents of Judea and Samaria.”
