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.
JUF amplifies our collective strength to make the world a better place — for everyone.
Community powered, we consider the totality of local and global Jewish needs and how to address them. From generation to generation, we help people connect to Jewish life and values, fueling a dynamic, enduring community that comes together for good.
