Federation President & CEO to Retire After More Than Four Decades
Jacob Solomon, who joined the Greater Miami Jewish Federation in 1981, has announced his plans to retire, effective June 30, 2024. He has served as President & CEO since 1992, guiding the raising and distribution of hundreds of millions of dollars to support humanitarian services and Jewish educational programs in Miami, in Israel and in more than 70 other countries worldwide. “This is a poignant moment for our Jewish community,” said Federation Board Chair Ariel Bentata. “Throughout his tenure, Jacob has helped shape Miami’s remarkable Jewish landscape." Richard D. Fain, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Royal Caribbean Group, has been appointed to lead the search for Solomon’s successor.
