The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati has hired Liam Reis as its new Young Adult Division (YAD) Development Officer, filling the role formerly held by Jaynie Levinson who is now Women’s Philanthropy Director. Reis will be responsible for identifying, cultivating, and developing young Jewish leaders and connecting them to the organized Jewish community.
Reis will also manage all fundraising activities related to Young Leadership, including development, cultivation, stewardship. He will also be responsible for curating and overseeing ten to fifteen meaningful programs and events that connect young adults to their Jewish identity, including the LEAD program, the National Young Leadership Cabinet, and the Ben-Gurion Society.
“I’m really excited to see what I can give back to my hometown,” said Reis. “I have been involved in YAD as a community member, and it has given me so much personally. I’m really honored by the opportunity to pass that along to others — to provide them chances to get involved in leadership roles in our community, and other avenues to help make our community stronger.”
Reis has previously worked as the Israel Programs Admission Director for the Jewish National Fund, and has a degree in tourism and travel services management from Kent State University.
