The new director of philanthropy at Beth Sholom Village is familiar to many people in the Hampton Roads Jewish community.

Amy Weinstein spent six years at United Jewish Federation of Tidewater as director of the Young Adult Division, then two years as director of development at Tidewater Jewish Foundation, before moving on to Eggleston Services in Norfolk where she was their development director for two years.

“While I greatly enjoyed my time working outside of the Jewish community, I always knew I’d come back someday,” says Weinstein, a Philadelphia area native and Bucknell University graduate, who earned her master’s degree of social work from the University of Pennsylvania.

“I am so excited to be part of the Beth Sholom Village family, and at such an exciting time—having just finished the Honor Campaign, with beautiful renovations taking place all around and with the opportunity for expansion on the horizon.”

Weinstein, who was a recent 40 under 40 honoree from Inside Business, is certified in both fundraising and as a Multigenerational Philanthropy Advisor. With UJFT, she created and implemented four signature leadership development programs that continue to provide a pipeline of high achieving and well-trained lay leaders for the local Jewish community.

“We are thrilled to have Amy directing our philanthropy program,” says David Abraham, CEO of Beth Sholom Village. “Not only is she experienced and has many important relationships in the community, but she is a real people person who loves sharing our story with potential donors. I think she’s a great fit for us as we continue to serve and grow.”
