After a year of unprecedented challenges, we look forward to coming together to honor Joey Jerome, a prominent Sephardic community leader, with the 2021 Morris Bailey Leadership Award.
We’ll also recognize UJA’s life-changing work in New York, Israel, and the Sephardic community.
This event is intended for donors of $3,600 or more to UJA’s 2021 Annual Campaign.
Young Leadership (30 years old and under) is invited to attend for a minimum gift of $1,800 to UJA’s 2021 Annual Campaign.
This event will be held in accordance with and subject to all applicable law and regulations, as well as state, local, and CDC guidelines, to protect the health and welfare of our staff and guests.
Joey Jerome is one of the Sephardic Brooklyn community’s founding leaders. His family name is synonymous with philanthropy and hesed, and his philanthropic commitment is guided by his sense of responsibility to all members of his community and his vision to enrich communal life.
In his teens, Joey led the CCY programs and as a young adult, he became a board member at the Sephardic Community Center (SCC) — also known as the Center — a UJA nonprofit partner and the vibrant pulse of Sephardic life in Brooklyn. He quickly assumed the presidency of the Center and in his eight-year term, helped transform it into a modern hub of social, recreational, and educational Jewish life meeting the needs of contemporary families and Sephardic individuals of all ages.
It’s characteristic of Joey to pour his heart and soul into projects that benefit the community for generations, and his service to the Center best exemplifies this. Joey also served for four years as a member of UJA’s board.
Joey’s beloved wife, Ester, is his equal partner in hesed and his greatest source of strength and support. Joey and Ester have five beautiful children who are following in their parents’ philanthropic footsteps.
