Jenny Cohen, Bay Area Program Coordinator

Jenny has worked in the Jewish nonprofit world for several years, focusing mainly on Jewish philanthropy and community building for families with young children. Before she entered the nonprofit sector she worked in law and tax for about 10 years. She has her BA from UC San Diego, her JD from Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco, and her MPA from San Francisco State University. The Jewish values of tzedakah and tikkun olam are motivating forces behind her work efforts and her connection to the Jewish community.
