The board of directors of the Jewish Community Relations Council/AJC in Bloomfield Hills has named Seth D. Gould president. He will serve a two-year term.
Gould joined AJC Detroit in 2011 and continued after the nonprofit partnered with the Jewish Community Relations Council to become JCRC/AJC. Gould has chaired the Development and Israel Programming Committees and served as vice president and first vice president.
“I am passionate about advocating on behalf of the metropolitan Detroit Jewish community, Israel, and threatened minorities, as well as fostering tolerance among interfaith and intergroup communities,” says Gould. “I am honored to have the opportunity to lead an incredible group of activists who comprise our board of directors.”
Gould is a partner at the Miller Law Firm in Rochester Hills. He is also a member of the Shalom Hartman Institute’s Detroit Community Leadership Program cohort and an alumnus of the Legacy Heritage OnBoard development program for Detroit.
Gould received his bachelor’s degree in industrial and operations engineering from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and his law degree from Wayne State University Law School in Detroit. He previously served on the board of the Cranbrook Kingswood Alumni Association.
JCRC/AJC has also welcomed four new board members for its 2020-2021 programming year: Rabbi Yonatan Dahlen, Jeri Fishman, Sheldon Freilich, and Sheri Shapiro.
JCRC/AJC represents the metro Detroit Jewish community through advocacy, activism, and media relations.
