Jewish National Fund-USA (JNF-USA) announced that Efrat Gilman has recently joined the organization as its youngest Chief Operating Officer in history, while bringing the number of women who serve in executive management to 50%.
Gilman, 34, is a graduate of New York University and New York Law School, and previously worked as a litigator before entering the Jewish nonprofit world as a legal, operations and administration professional. Additionally, she is a facilitation fellow with the national nonprofit Resetting the Table which helps bridge communication divides, serves on the Board of Trustees of the Abraham Joshua Heschel School, and volunteered mentoring crisis advocates at Mt. Sinai Hospital. 

“Jewish National Fund is a historic institution in global philanthropy and has undergone an incredible reimagining of its work while remaining authentic to its original mission – to build a strong land of Israel and to connect Jewish people everywhere to their ancestral homeland,” said Gilman. “It is not surprising that JNF-USA has a growing number of female leaders, executives, and board members, and I am privileged to be working among such a high caliber of colleagues throughout the organization.”  

“I am very proud to welcome Efrat to the Jewish National Fund-USA family and know that she will be very hands-on managing donor relations, particularly the younger generation, who are the future of our organization,” shared CEO Russell F. Robinson. “Her background, experience, and dedication ensure that she’s the right person for this key role.”
