[Robert A. Zuritsky], who was invited by JFRE chair William H. Glazer to join the group as a founding member two years ago, has enjoyed the chance to "see firsthand some of the great things that Federation helps to fund through JFRE's participation in Mitzvah Mania and other volunteer experiences."Ira Saligman has also been a part of JFRE's leadership since the inception of group, which is modeled after successful organizations in Chicago and Los Angeles. He says that he sees JFRE involvement as a vehicle for people in the real estate industry and ancillary trades "to get involved in Federation in a way that benefits them as individuals and has a positive impact on the Jewish community.""JFRE support of initiatives like these that promote pride in home ownership, self-sufficiency and self-reliance is so important," he says.
