Bonnie Pollack, Director

Bonnie was a Board Member of the Barry and Florence Friedberg Jewish Community Center in Oceanside, NY in the late 1990s-early 2000s, and participated integrally in their capital campaign to raise significant funds to purchase the building that they have since inhabited.

She has been a practicing bankruptcy and restructuring attorney for nearly 35 years. Practicing in that field has enabled me to become a skilled scrivener, negotiator and advocate, which I believe are essential tools for all aspects of life. I am a Board Member of workOUT, a networking group for LGBTQ professionals in the restructuring field, and I am a member of the Chapter 11 Lawyers Advisory Committee of the Eastern District of New York since its inception in 2014, chosen to be on the Committee by then-presiding Chief Judge of the Eastern District Bankruptcy Court.

Bonnie is also a former Board Member of The Circle of Strength, a local fundraising organization formed by me and others for ovarian cancer research.
