Janis L. Oolie, Executive Director

Janis was born in New York City and raised in New Jersey.  From an early age her father, a former president of the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ, instilled in her the need to help others, the virtues of philanthropy and commitment to Israel. Those ties to Israel have only grown deeper after multiple visits, both personal and professional.

During a 20+ year career in development Janis has held leadership positions with the Jewish Federation of Northern NJ, the Jewish Federation of Princeton, United Way of Greater Mercer County, Bloomfield College and Jewish Family Services of Middlesex County.   Janis holds a B.A. from Simmons University and resides in Central New Jersey with her husband Robert.

When not working Janis enjoys time with her recently married daughter, Kylie, her husband Tom and stepson Ryan as well as her mother and sisters, all of whom live in the NY metro area.
