NCJW Miami, The National Council of Jewish Women Greater Miami Section, Names First Executive Director in a Decade

The Greater Miami Section of the National Council of Jewish Women, locally known as NCJW Miami, hired Amy Bloom, who is its first Executive Director in a decade. NCJW Miami has been making a difference in the lives of women, children, and families in Miami and South Florida since its inception in 1921. Now, it is reorganizing to more readily meet the needs of the community and its members, with a diverse and enigmatic new board and an Executive Director at the helm.

NCJW Miami Board Co-President, Jenni Person responds to its new direction, “Coupled with the redevelopment of a new, dynamic Board, the appointment of an Executive Director marks an exciting moment of infrastructure expansion for NCJW Miami. Our section can now take on our justice-centered work and mission with the impact of a solid organization while modeling the priority of professionalizing and elevating women’s roles that have historically been volunteer and undervalued as such.”

Amy Bloom brings a wealth of non-profit experience. Previously, Amy established herself as a leader in the LGBTQ community in her native Chicago as co-chair of the Human Rights Campaign’s Chicago Gala and Executive Director for Equality Illinois. She also successfully managed her own company, supporting the fundraising and marketing efforts of over a dozen organizations. Moving to Miami six years ago, Amy most recently served as NCJW Miami’s Director of Outreach & Engagement. In this role, she led the organization’s governance transition from a presidium to a twenty-six member Board of Directors. Amy brings to NCJW Miami her expertise in strategic planning, grassroots organizing, and building coalitions that drive a wider movement.

Caren Kamlet, Board Co-President adds, “It has been my pleasure to volunteer for this amazing organization. As part of the fabric of Miami’s social justice history, NCJW has been helping those in need for almost 100 years. It’s the relationship between the community and the organization that has kept us strong. Our community service and advocacy efforts have uplifted lives across race, gender, culture and spirituality.”

Amy Bloom has her eyes set on the future, "I am honored to be NCJW Miami's Executive Director, and to have the opportunity to work with and build powerful women leaders who want to bring the organization into its second centennial."

ABOUT NCJW Miami: NCJW Miami currently advocates its progressive ideals with local, state and federal legislators. NCJW Miami will accompany NCJW members from around the state to Tallahassee in early February to promote reproductive rights and justice, gun safety, women’s equality and civil rights legislation. In April of 2019, members joined over 400 national NCJW members in Washington D.C. to promote similar legislation. NCJW Miami provides a leadership program for professional women, NCJW Teens, forming the future of women’s leadership and educational opportunities on advocacy, community building and spiritual enrichment. The section’s community service efforts include providing comfort for cancer patients, rides to polls, supporting local public education and immigrants’ needs.
