Erin Cohen began working for the Jewish Federation of Jacksonville in Sept. 2012. Cohen and her family moved to Florida from Cincinnati, where she worked for the Foundation at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. In that role she primarily focused on women’s giving, annual giving and helped launch an employee giving campaign. Prior to moving to Cincinnati, the Ohio native lived in Cleveland, where she was a community director for March of Dimes.


Cohen is an Ohio State Buckeye through and through, but she truly loves living in Jacksonville, and especially working on behalf of the Jewish community. Her husband, Matt, is the associate rabbi at Congregation Ahavath Chesed (The Temple) and together they have a son, Ayden.
