(San Francisco, CA) – The Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin and Sonoma Counties welcomes Bruce Landgarten as regional director of the South Peninsula office and activities. Landgarten has a long and distinctive career within the Jewish community, most recently as the executive director of the Levine Jewish Community Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. Previously, he worked with JCCs in Contra Costa County, Chicago and Detroit. Landgarten has a record of community building, strategic and programmatic thinking, implementing new and innovative projects and accomplished fundraising.  Landgarten joined the Federation as of April 1.

“We are delighted that Bruce has joined us as director for our South Peninsula region,” says Thomas A. Dine, CEO of the Federation. “His experience, knowledge and leadership will help us address the needs of this important community as it grows and evolves.”

When asked about his thoughts regarding the South Peninsula, Landgarten says, “I am truly impressed by the dedicated and talented lay leaders and professionals at the Federation. Each person is committed and ready to move forward as a team. They exemplify the ruach that is sometimes missing in community organizations. I welcome the opportunity to promote Federation's mission and insure a bright and viable future for our Jewish community. My wife Carol and I are looking forward to making the South Peninsula our home.”

The Jewish Community Federation is the central organization for fundraising, planning, outreach and leadership development for Jewish communities in San Francisco, the Peninsula and Marin and Sonoma counties. In FY 2004-05, the Federation’s annual campaign allocated $16.9 million to some 60 agencies providing social services, educational and cultural programs in the Bay Area, in the U.S., Israel and elsewhere in the world. In fiscal year 2005, the Federation’s Endowment Fund, with assets exceeding $1.05 billion, provided more than $215 million for a variety of grants, seed projects and emergency needs.
