Brief Bios

Jane Eisner, a pioneer in journalism, became editor-in-chief of The Forward in June 2008, the first woman to hold the position at the influential Jewish national weekly newspaper. Under her leadership, The Forward has won numerous regional and national awards for its original journalism, in print and online.

Harold Grinspoon is a businessman, focused on getting the best return on his investments. From humble beginnings, he achieved financial success over a 50-year career in the multi-family housing industry, buying apartment buildings in need of repair, fixing them up and then managing them efficiently for long-term growth. Harold is now applying his business approach to philanthropy, creating and investing in philanthropic models that are yielding positive results for the Jewish community.

In 1993, Harold and his wife, Diane Troderman, established the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF). The foundation’s mission is to enhance Jewish life among young people, adults and families, and was initially focused on funding Jewish communal organizations and projects in Western Massachusetts, where Harold and Diane reside. Local support goes to day schools, community service organizations, teen philanthropy, trips to Israel, a Jewish film festival and more. Over time, the foundation has expanded its focus, funding projects with national and international reach. To date, the HGF has invested more than $120 million dollars in Jewish causes and developed successful partnerships with Jewish communal organizations and fellow philanthropists to achieve best results.
