With more than 30 years of experience as a genealogist, former member of the JewishGen Board of Governors, and editor of Dorot for the Jewish Genealogical Society of New York, among many other organizations, she is well suited for her new position.

Borough daughter Sarina is the author of “Branching Out From Sepharad, a History of Sephardic Jews from Spain to Aleppo to the Americas” as well as the cookbook “Backyard Kitchen: Mediterranean Salads,” and the app Sarina’s Sephardic Cuisine, as well as the owner of a consultant firm.
