Jewish Fertility Foundation Moves, Hires New Staff

JFF moves into a bigger office in Atlanta and adds four new employees, including its first chief financial officer.

Jewish Fertility Foundation moved its offices from 60 Lenox Point in Buckhead to bigger offices less than two miles away at 1417 Mayson Street in Atlanta.

The nonprofit that provides financial assistance, educational awareness and emotional support to Jewish people with medical fertility challenges also hired four new staff members: its first chief financial officer, national program director, development associate and JFF-CINCY (Cincinnati) manager.

The new CFO is Michael Himmelstein, who comes with more than 40 years of similar experience and is also working part-time for JFF’s partner organization, Honeymoon Israel, with which it will share offices.

Emily Zaghi is the new national program director.

New JFF staff are, top row, Michael Himmelstein, Emma Wimberly; bottom row, Emily Zaghi and Anna Meyere Burke.

“As JFF expands, we were thrilled to promote Emily from our first-ever director of JFF-Atlanta to our first-ever national program director. For the past year, Emily has worked on a local level with our Atlanta community in addition to taking JFF’s presence online to Zoom and social media at the onset of COVID-19, so we knew she would be a perfect fit for this new position,” JFF reported in a press release.

The new development associate is Emma Hall Wimberly. She was a master of social work intern in 2019-’20. “Emma has now graduated from her MSW program and is re-joining the team to help with gift processing and grant management,” JFF reported.

Anna Meyers Burke is the new JFF-CINCY manager. As JFF’s presence in Cincinnati expands, the need for JFF’s services has increased exponentially, the nonprofit reported. Burke was the JFF rabbinic fellow in 2019-’20. She will “fill the JFF-CINCY manager role and continue to build relationships with the local Cincinnati community,” the release stated.
