2012 Double Chai in the Chi
As YLD Campaign Chair, Jimmy gave us ... Jimmy. As in Jimmy Fallon, as in the special guest of the biggest YLD event in its decades-long history, with 2,600 in attendance. Oh, and it raised more than $400,000. It’s altogether appropriate that the event involved a comic, since the friend who nominated Jimmy calls him “the funniest guy I know.”
Jimmy recently graduated from JUF’s Jewish Leadership Institute, serves on JFNA’s National Young Leadership Cabinet - and is now the president of YLD. He’s a property tax attorney, married with two kids ... so while he enjoys stand-up, he’s also a stand-up guy. In fact, he says that part of the reason he “find[s] nothing more satisfying then knowing that I am helping thousands of Jews locally and throughout the world” is that by doing so, he is “setting an example for my children.”
