Howard Tevlowitz, CEO of The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee (JFSM) for more than 20 years, has announced plans to retire as of Dec. 31, 2021. Tevlowitz has spent his career working in Jewish federations in Long Beach, CA; Philadelphia, PA; and Minneapolis, MN.  Tevlowitz's accomplishments at JFSM include the re-envisioning of the federation’s 33-acre Larry & Mary Greenspon Family Campus for Jewish Life, for which an ongoing capital campaign so far has successfully raised $15.4 million; establishing a "Life & Legacy" community-wide endowment campaign that has secured more than $20 million in legacy gifts for 11 area Jewish institutions; creating a security infrastructure to ensure the safety of the Jewish community, including the hiring of the organization’s first community security director; establishing relationships and partnerships with educational, faith-based and arts organizations throughout the community; and bringing financial stability to the federation through strong financial leadership and diversified revenue streams.

The federation has initiated a national search for Tevlowitz's successor, led by federation board chair Dr. Joel Morganroth and vice-chair Patti Wertheimer, as well as Veronica Brady, Randon Carvel, David Millstone, Mike Ritter, Wayne Ruben and Rabbi Jennifer Singer.
