We are thrilled to announce the establishment of The Jackie Strom Sinykin and Dr. Stephen G. Sinykin Endowment Fund for Leadership Development at NCJW Minnesota. Established in Jackie’s memory by her family, this fund will support our leadership development programming and activities, including supporting leaders to attend NCJW national meetings and events.
Jacqueline Sue ‘Jackie’ (Strom) Sinykin led NCJW Minnesota as Section President from 1976-1979, going on to serve on the National Board from 1981-1993.
NCJW Minnesota member Soni Cohen paid tribute to Jackie after her passing last year:
“Jackie, at the helm, did what she did best – she gathered groups of women and led them to do meaningful work…always focused on collaboration, aspiration and vision. She fostered creativity and openness. She encouraged respectful conflict. And she insisted upon results.”
In short, Jackie embodied leadership – leading NCJW with extraordinary vision, humility, and grace. Please consider a donation to The Jackie Strom Sinykin and Dr. Stephen G. Sinykin Endowment Fund for Leadership Development at NCJW Minnesota to honor Jackie’s memory and ensure that tomorrow’s leaders have the tools and opportunities they need to fulfill her incomparable and illustrious legacy.
