Changemaker to Work with Jewish Teens

Comments Off on Changemaker to Work with Jewish Teens

Matthew Fieldman, an advertising agency CEO who’s won several awards and honors for his work as a social entrepreneur, has been named the 2015 USY Danny Siegel Changemaker-in-Residence by United Synagogue Youth. Over the course of the year, Fieldman will serve as a teacher, mentor and role model for Jewish teens, inspiring them to make a commitment to social action and social justice. This summer, Fieldman toured the country, visiting USY summer trips to engage with USYers in hands-on service projects. The Changemaker program, in its second year, is funded by a generous gift from Dianne and Martin Newman of Providence, Rhode Island, in memory of their parents, Sylvia and Leonard Zimet and Lillian and Morris Newman.
