Eve Overback Rosenfeld
Eve Overback Rosenfeld has defined the spirit of community involvement and care. A native Portlander, she has been an
instrumental and driving force in the Jewish community and beyond.
From serving as Board President in the 60’s for Jewish Family & Child Service, working with the Multnomah County Human Relations Commission, serving on the board of Cedar Sinai Park, the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland and Congregation Beth Israel, Eve has had a positive impact on the lives of many, creating positive change through hands-on outreach.
Her work for children and children’s issues is evident throughout her tenure as JFCS Board President and her work in the community.
Alan Rosenfeld, also a native Portlander, split his time as a young man between Stanford, the University of Washington, and as a bombardier in WWII.
An engineer, he has invested years of volunteering through the Portland community, from serving as a Scout Master for the Portland Boy Scouts to driving for Meals on Wheels. His dedication and enthusiasm for giving to the community landed him on the Boards of Loaves and Fishes, Mittleman Jewish Community Center, and the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland as well as programs such as Meals on Wheels and Cedar Sinai Park.
Alan and Eve were married in 1953. In 2006, the Rosenfelds were awarded the Rabbi Joshua Stampfer Enrichment
Award for their Service to the Portland Community.
The 8th Annual
Honoring the work of Jewish Family & Child Service
As you’ve probably guessed, our much anticipated Jewish Family & Child Service Luncheon honoring Eve and Alan Rosenfeld will not be happening this Spring. However, we will still celebrate Eve and Alan in another manner – the “Un-Luncheon”!
Un-Luncheon 2020 Activities
We are planning different weekly activities for the next month for both kids and adults to enjoy. Check back on Monday!
JFCS is receiving much needed funds from the current Federation COVID-19 crisis campaign, primarily to support mental health and emergency aid services in our community. However, we still have “normal” fundraising holes to be filled. During this community crisis, people are looking to JFCS for help and we must continue to support their needs.
