Interim CEO

Founded 1901, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia serves the sixth-largest U.S. Jewish community. It has established a number of campaigns, including Operation Moses, which helped with the resettlement of Ethiopian Jews in Israel in 1984-85, in support of its mission to provide resources and facilitate Jewish community-building in Philadelphia, Israel and internationally. After the recent departure of its CEO, Ira Schwartz, the Federation has been engaged in a search for new leadership.

Alex Stroker presently serves as the interim CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia. Since 1996 he has managed the Jewish Exponent, a Jewish newspaper, and served as the chief operating officer of the Federation. Stroker holds a bachelor’s from Penn State University.
