Man of Steel  

Founding Partner of Bar Processing (a major steel processor for automotive parts); Past President of Federation and the Jewish Community Center; astute fundraiser, strategic community planner and avid supporter of Israel; naming sponsor the Loving Acts of Kindness Fund and JCC’s annual “Matzah Factory.” An aficionado of model trains since childhood, proud to become a Bar Mitzvah at the age of 63. Ever learning, ever curious, always dapper in his signature specs. This is Douglas Bloom, recipient of Federation’s highest honor, the 2018 Fred M. Butzel Memorial Award.
