STAMFORD, Conn. -- Jonathan Fass joined Jewish Family Service — which has offices in Stamford and Westport — in the position of chief operating officer.
As COO, Fass will be responsible for the oversight of key elements of JFS operations and programming, including the annual fundraiser, An Evening with JFS.
He has worked for 17 years as at the Fairfield County-based social service agency, serving most recently as a vice president at the Jewish Community Centers Association. He was previously an assistant executive director and Jewish educator in JCCs across the United States.
From 2002 to 2006, Fass served as the managing director of Jewish living and learning at the JCC of Stamford. His family left Stamford in 2006 for Israel. He returned to Stamford in July 2014.
He holds a master's degree from the Jewish Theological Seminary and was a fellow both in the Senior Educators Program of the Melton Centre for Jewish Education at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Jim Joseph Foundation Fellowship of the Lookstein Center for Jewish Education at Bar Ilan University.
“I am excited to join Matt Greenberg and the JFS staff in providing critical services to our community every day. You won’t find more dedicated professionals, a Board of Directors or volunteers to the mission of serving those most in need. It is a privilege to lend my hands and heart to the mission of JFS,” Fass said.
Fass' position was created as a result of the retirement of associate executive director of JFS Iris Morrison and her subsequent relocation to Israel.
JFS is a full service, non-sectarian agency that serves Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Westport, Weston, Wilton and Norwalk. It offers programs in the following areas: Counseling, Employment & Training, Senior Services, College Counseling, Jewish Family Life Education, Information and Referral, and Crisis Response and Case Management.
JFS offices are located at 733 Summer St., 6th floor, Stamford, and 431 Post Road East, Suite 11, Westport.
