Director of UJF of Gr. Stamford steps down

Marty Greenberg

STAMFORD – After six years heading United Jewish Federation of Greater Stamford, New Canaan and Darien (UJF), executive vice president Martin Greenberg is taking a position with Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), the umbrella organization of 157 Jewish federations across the U.S. and Canada.
Greenberg joined UJF in 2005, after serving as associate executive vice president and CEO of Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey, where he coordinated the merger between Jewish Federation of North Jersey and UJA Federation of Bergen County and North Hudson.
After earning a Master’s degree in social work from Yeshiva University in 1976, Greenberg directed group homes for developmentally disabled adults and worked as a family therapist and in psychiatric vocational rehabilitation. He went on to serve in leadership positions at the Rosenthal YMYWHA of Northern Westchester, N.Y. and the JCC of Yonkers (now JCC on the Hudson), and was an assistant national director of development of the Anti-Defamation League,
Greenberg left UJF of Greater Stamford in October, and will serve as executive director of the Network of Independent Communities of JFNA. The network brings together 400 small communities throughout North America that are not within Federation areas, but that support JFNA’s humanitarian work through the organization’s annual campaign.
Nancy Mimoun, board president of UJF of Greater Stamford, says that a search committee hopes to have an interim director in place in January 2012.
