Ensuring the Future of our Community
Sheri and Stuart Glauberman are a part of a family legacy of involvement in the Jewish community spanning four generations. Stuart’s father Murray was president of the Jewish Community Center (JCC) and led the building committee in the creation of the JCC’s current home at 750 White Pond. Stuart and his brother Jay both served as presidents of the JCC. Sheri’s parents, Marilyn and Stan Regal (ages 90 and 88, respectively), live in Akron and are also very involved in the Jewish community. The Regals founded the Mitzvah Group at the JCC, and their smiling faces can be seen volunteering throughout the community.
Being active in the Greater Akron community is in the DNA of Sheri and Stuart. Sheri is very involved with the Mandel Early Childhood Education Center at the Shaw JCC of Akron and is one of the founding members of the Granny Group. Stuart has been involved in United Way of Summit County for the past ten years and served as Chair of the United Way Campaign in 2015.
Serving as the 2020 Jewish Community Board of Akron (JCBA) Annual Campaign Chairs is yet another example of the Glauberman family’s continued support of Jewish values and commitment to creating a bright future for our community. It is their way of not only honoring the work of generations who have come before them but also securing a vibrant community for generations to come.
“We have four generations of family in Akron. The Akron Jewish community has played an important role for each generation. There is no better way to maintain our Jewish community for our grandchildren and future generations than to be involved in this year’s campaign.
Every time we visit the Schultz Campus for Jewish Life with our grandchildren, it includes a stop to look at the pictures of the JCC Presidents. We pick out the pictures of their great grandfather and Uncle and their Papa.”
