Mark has been a member of the board of directors of AJC’s Westchester Region since 2003. He is presently a vice president. He is currently the co-chair of the region’s Energy Committee.
Mark’s involvement with the AJC Board is another step in a thirty plus years Jewish journey. A leadership position at AJC is a natural and logical extension of the work that he has done for more than 10 years in Westchester, and for ten years in Dutchess County. AJC-comprised of its national office, offices worldwide, and 28 U.S. chapters- is a powerful positive force in the Jewish world, the national scene and in the realm of international diplomacy. Mark is thrilled and honored to be able to play a role in its efforts.
In addition to his work in the field of energy policy, Mark has significant experience in the areas of Israel advocacy, Jewish continuity and revitalization, and board governance. For more than ten years, Mark has served on the Board of Trustees (six years as an officer) of his synagogue, Congregations Sons of Israel Briarcliff Manor. He is most proud of his accomplishments as a co-facilitator of CSI’s Synagogue 2000 team and on numerous policy, fundraising, and outreach committees. Mark has traveled and studied extensively in Israel and hopes that his children continue in that tradition.
Mark is a Partner in the Hawthorne, N.Y. law firm of Reisman, Rubeo and McClure, LLP. He is a graduate of Binghamton University and received his J.D. from the law school of the State University of New York at Buffalo.
Mark and his wife Rika met in Israel while on a UJA mission. Rika is the director of marketing and communications for Jewish Education Services of North America, Inc. Both are active in projects which raise awareness and funds for grass roots programs for Israel. The couple’s daughters Beth, 15, and Sandy, 14, attend the Solomon Schechter School of Westchester
