Susan Altman

Susan comes to us from Hebrew SeniorLife as the Manager of "Friends of Hebrew SeniorLife" and has a strong background in development, administrative operations, budgeting, team management, strategic planning and customer support. Susan's passion for Jewish living combined with her professional expertise and personal experience make her well suited for this vital role in our community.

Susan is originally from Muncie, Indiana and grew up in the Reform movement. Her fondest memories are of summer camping and serving as the Youth Director at Temple Israel in Boston early in her career. In addition to volunteering as Co-President of two Parent-Teacher Organizations, Susan has worked for both secular and Jewish not-for-profit organizations and is driven by a desire to build strong partnerships with her colleagues, customers, and friends. As she has said, "I thrive on creating a warm, caring and welcoming community; it is simply who I am."

Susan and her husband Michael live in Needham with their three daughters, Sammy, Lily, and Grace.
