Advocate, Activist, Agent of Change

Jewish Detroiter and quintessential communal professional, David Kurzmann returned to Detroit in 2015 to join the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) as its Executive Director after nearly a decade of service to the Chicago Jewish community. With credentials proven to be impeccable for the job, David, 31, is the youngest in Federation’s agency network of top executives. His homecoming marks an exciting new path forward for the agency, now working in partnership with the American Jewish Committee – as JCRC/AJC – to better serve as the voice and leading public affairs representative of our Jewish community on both the local and global stages.

From Israel with Love

Talk about her credentials! Nina Yahalomi Klevitsky, 32, couldn’t be better prepared for the road ahead as Detroit’s new emissary (shlicha) from Israel. Easily she could have settled into any one of her career paths and stayed: a high school English teacher; a medic and captain in the IDF reserves; Director of the National Child at Risk program in Tel Aviv; Co-Founder of MICS (Media in Conflicts Seminar) for journalists abroad; a leader of the Israeli Scouts Friendship Caravan. Following her heart to a future in service to Israel, she’s taken the next step - moving here and joining the family of Federation.
