Boca Raton, FL
Shirley Solomon, Board Member, has been a long time volunteer in the Jewish Community. At present, she serves on the Boards of two National Jewish Organizations and a number of boards and Committees locally. Shirley grew up in a small town in the Mississippi Delta with a rich family Jewish heritage and not too many opportunities for organized Jewish Education. She has a B.A. from Smith College and a M.A. from New York University, married Allan from Boston, and raised four children in Louisville, Kentucky; where she was active in the Louisville JCC, Louisville Community Hebrew School and other Jewish Educational offerings. Shirley enjoys her four grown children, their spouses and eleven grandchildren and is proud of the fact that they participate in Jewish Life in four separate communities in the U.S.â€”Boca Raton, Chicago, Las Vegas and Los Altos. She feels that having three grandchildren in Los Altos makes her a Bay Area Resident, once removed.
