A respected lawyer and businesswoman, Renée brought to Moving Traditions her impressive experience in the corporate world and her tireless advocacy for girls and women in the Jewish community and beyond. Through her service on the Board of Directors and as a long-time funder, Renée helped to strengthen Moving Traditions and advance a portfolio of programs that emboldens Jewish youth – and the adults who work with them – to navigate the challenges of adolescence, and to thrive.
Renée’s impact on the greater Philadelphia business community is significant, as a founding director of Team Capital Bank, and Vice-President and General Counsel of RE/MAX of Pennsylvania and Delaware. The loving mother of five and grandmother of nine, even with a busy career and growing family, Renée always made time for communal leadership. As Board Chair, she helped build Women of Vision, the Jewish Women’s Foundation of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia. Renée also served on the boards of Abramson Senior Care, the Montgomery Bar Association, and the Trustee’s Council of Penn Women.
“A trail-blazing role model for emerging leaders today, Renée has emboldened girls and women of diverse backgrounds to claim positions of authority,” said Moving Traditions Board Chair, Rabbi Darcie Crystal. “We are delighted and honored to celebrate Renée for her investment in Moving Traditions and the Jewish community, so that people of all genders can ‘connect, challenge, and change’ our society for the greater good.”
