At the end of April, Daan Braveman will once again embark on a leadership journey, this time at the Louis S. Wolk Jewish Community Center. The president emeritus of Nazareth University will serve as the organization’s interim CEO.

The JCC is in the process of searching for a new leader, after CEO Josh Weinstein shared his decision to step down from the role. Braveman is expected to remain in the position until a new CEO is named.

An attorney, Braveman, who is also chair of the Farash Foundation, has been in higher education at Nazareth University, and previously as dean of Syracuse University College of Law for several years. He retired from Nazareth in 2020, after a 15-year tenure.

He has been credited with growing the university with a renewed commitment to creating an inclusive and diverse campus. Upon his retirement, Braveman expressed a desire to be an active community member–he is involved with other organizations and initiatives in Rochester.

At JCC, Braveman will be joined by Isobel Goldman as its incoming board president on July 1. Goldman and Braveman are expected to assist the JCC–whose roots date to 1907–as it develops a roadmap for the years to come.
