Jeff Narod, a native of Massachusetts, grew up in Brookline and now lives in the Worcester area. As a Jewish community organizer, Jeff has been involved in the heart of the Jewish Community here in Central Massachusetts.
As a current Board Member of the Jewish Federation of Central Mass, he has served as President of the Hillel Advisory Board, President of the Israel and Foreign relations committee, President of the Westborough Area JCC as well as liaison to SNEC, the consortium that connects us to our sister region Afula Gilboa.
Together with his wife Judy, and children Mirka and Ilan, Jeff has assumed organizing and hosting roles with the Young Emissary program and the summer JCC Israeli Counselor program. Their Israeli family includes dozens of young emissaries who have lived in their home for periods of 2 weeks to a year.
Jeff’s background and graduate work in Community Psychology and Healthcare Administration, along with his relationship with leaders, rabbis and members of all the Jewish organizations in Central Mass, affords him the ability to connect Hillel Students to the Worcester community at large in many meaningful ways. It is his goal to continue to provide the vision and resources for the amazing student led Clark University Hillel, so it is the center of their Jewish lives while at college.
