Eve Reingold Kleinerman is a force to be reckoned with. After her mother's long battle with metastatic breast cancer, and her passing in 2016, Eve left her role as an attorney at a legal aid clinic to singlehandedly open the regional office of
an organization that helps Jewish women fighting breast and ovarian cancer and promotes outreach, education and support.
Described as "brilliant," "passionate" and a "powerhouse," Eve has dedicated her professional life to providing critical education and advocacy in this important realm. She also works to cultivate meaningful partnerships within the medical and Jewish communities -- laying the groundwork to save lives.
Outside of her robust professional life, Eve is a board member at her synagogue, Kehilat Chovevei Tzion; active at her children's school, Arie Crown Hebrew Day School; and a volunteer at Cabrini Green Legal Aid.
Illinois Regional Director at Sharsheret

HOW DO YOU GIVE BACK:
“Love is, giving to another.” – Rabbi Eliyahu Dessler. I choose to give, both in my personal and professional capacities, so that I continue to love and grow within the Jewish community.
DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN 10 WORDS OR LESS:
Mom, wife and advocate, always willing to speak up.
A JEW WHO INSPIRES YOU:
My mom! My mom was the classiest woman you would ever meet. She taught me how to be a strong woman, raise a successful family, while also being an instrumental part of the Jewish community. My work every day is in her memory.
