Deena Sherman, Executive Director. Deena was born and raised in Cherry Hill. She attended Kellman Academy just a few years ago when it was housed at Congregation Beth El. Deena has her MSW from the University of Pennsylvania. She spent over 20 years working for the Katz JCC and is familiar to many in the community for her time as Associate Director of the JCC Camps at Medford. 

A few years ago, Deena decided to take on a new responsibility that kept her connected to the South Jersey Jewish community when she became the Director of Operations for Jewish Federation. She is thrilled to join the Kellman Brown team which allows her to continue to serve the Jewish community she grew up in and raised her children in.
