Announcing The Jeffrey B. Plevan Memorial Fund for Professional Development
Jeffrey B. Plevan z”l was a consummate Jewish professional remembered for his positive spirit & infectious personality. Diagnosed at an early age with severe delayed speech and language processing difficulties, he possessed an inner drive to overcome life’s obstacles. Jeff’s life embodied the fulfillment of Reb Zusya’s challenge – Jeff lived his life fully, reaching, indeed exceeding, his potential. May his memory be an inspiration for all who knew him, and for those for whom Judaism can help lead to a life worth living. Click here to read more about Jeffrey.
