Yehuda Neuberger and Atara Frankel Winners
Baltimore, MD – In honor of their outstanding leadership in the Jewish community, Yehuda Neuberger and Atara Frankel were presented with The Harry Greenstein Young Leadership Award from The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore. This award salutes a young man and woman who have demonstrated a profound commitment and sustained leadership to The Associated, its annual campaign and the general community.
Born and raised in Baltimore, Neuberger has played an active role in the Jewish community through The Associated and other communal organizations. In addition to chairing the 2013 Annual Campaign, he chaired the Day School Task Force, as well as the Caring Commission's sub-group on Fiscal Awareness and Responsibility.
An advocate for the Jewish community's strong relationship with Israel, Neuberger has chaired the Israel and Overseas Committee, the Israel Engagement Center and the Israel Education Task Force, among others. He’s served in other capacities as a committee member for Agency Excellence, the Campaign Executive Cabinet, and Community Planning and Allocations, to name a few. He also worked to bring many members of the Orthodox community to The Associated, leading both Orthodox Outreach and The Associated's first Inter-denominational Shabbaton.
Professionally, Neuberger is an attorney and an active venture investor. He is married to Anne and has two children, ages 14 and 15.
A native of Montreal, Canada, Frankel moved to Baltimore 10 years ago with her husband, Dov, and their five children. Her involvement with The Associated began shortly after, as she started with the Young Leadership Council (YLC). Frankel has since participated on several boards, including The Associated’s Board of Directors, and chaired YLC for two years.
Frankel is very involved with supporting single moms in the orthodox community and is an active volunteer at her shul (B’nai Jacob Shaarei Zion) and her son’s school (Talmudical Academy).
Recipients of The Harry Greenstein Young Leadership Award are nominated by Associated professionals and selected by a committee of the past 10 years of award winners. This award, made possible by the Jill Fox Memorial Fund, is named in honor of Harry Greenstein, executive director of The Associated from 1928-1965.
