Avery Kaufman, JSV Board Chair

Diana is highly respected throughout the community and was instrumental in managing the various stakeholder groups throughout the 2021 merger between Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley and the JCC Los Gatos to form Jewish Silicon Valley (JSV).

“I am incredibly humbled by the opportunity to step into my next chapter here at Jewish Silicon Valley. For those of you who don’t know my story, I started here as an Intern from San Jose State. My love for this community has grown deeply over the years, as I continued to grow professionally (and personally) alongside colleagues, lay leaders, and stakeholders. This has been my home – I have shared my college graduation, engagement, marriage, and birth of my first child, Hunter, and sending Hunter to the APJCC Preschool with many of you. I am looking forward to amazing new opportunities full of imagination, communication, innovation, inclusion, collaboration and passion.”
Diana Schnabel-Arevalo, Chief Operations Officer.
