Cindy Sher is the Executive Editor of
JUF News. She also hosts the quarterly public affairs TV show
Sanctuary, produced by JUF, on ABC 7 Chicago. She started her career at the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago in the summer of 2000, weeks after graduating with her Bachelors of Science in Broadcast Journalism from Northwestern University. Cindy is currently pursuing her Executive Masters of Arts in Jewish Professional Studies at the Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership. A Minneapolis native, Cindy is a Chicago transplant and loves -- in no particular order -- 80s music, movies from all decades, mentoring grade school students, jogging along the lake, s'mores, and her friends and family.
The Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago is the one organization that impacts every aspect of local and global Jewish life, providing human services for Jews and others in need, creating Jewish experiences and strengthening Jewish community connections.
