As the Senior Vice President for Public Policy and Director of the Washington Office of The Jewish Federations of North America, William Daroff is the chief lobbyist and principal spokesperson on public policy and international affairs for the 148 Jewish Federations and more than 300 independent communities.
Named by the Forward newspaper as being among the fifty most influential Jews in America, Daroff guides the Jewish community’s advocacy efforts on the Federation movement’s key foreign and domestic policy issues. Daroff is also a social networking pioneer and evangelist. The JTA news service named him the most influential person on “Jewish Twitter” (Prime Minister Netanyahu followed in the second slot).

Daroff received his Bachelor’s Degree (summa cum laude) in Political Science & History, Master’s Degree in Political Science, and Juris Doctorate from Case Western Reserve University in his hometown of Cleveland, OH.
I am involved in JPRO Network because it is essential that Jewish communal professionals have the resources and the encouragement to better serve our community. A strong JPRO Network translates into a stronger Jewish community.
