Los Angeles, CA., November 2, 2021 — “Attorney to the stars,” Fred Toczek of Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson LLP, and his wife, Susan Toczek, have been welcomed as the new Board Co-Presidents of Jewish National Fund-USA (JNF-USA) in Los Angeles. With his firm’s star-studded clientele including actors Daniel Radcliffe, Seth Rogen, Vin Diesel, Mila Kunis, and Zac Efron, the philanthropy’s leadership look forward to deepening the already flourishing ties between Israel and Los Angeles’ entertainment industries while gaining further support for its community building efforts in Israel’s Negev and Galilee.


In a joint statement, Fred and Susan Toczek said: “We are so honored and excited to serve as Co-Presidents of Jewish National Fund-USA’s Los Angeles Board. We are inspired by their efforts to secure a prosperous future for all people living in the land of Israel by building new communities, developing water solutions and agriculture, preserving heritage sites, and improving services and engagement for people with disabilities. The L.A. Board is a dynamic and devoted team, and we look forward to collaborating with them to continue and expand their important work.”


The Toczeks’ appointments to the presidency comes at a time when JNF-USA is set to achieve its best fundraising campaign on record, with the organization raising $120 million nationally in support of its work in Israel’s Negev and Galilee.


JNF-USA Greater Los Angeles Executive Director Lou Rosenberg said: “We have experienced tremendous growth over the last three years with our Greater Los Angeles community playing a critical role towards our One Billion Dollar Roadmap for the Next Decade. Susie & Fred are amazing Zionists who have deep roots in LA’s Jewish and entertainment communities and carry with them the vision to take Los Angeles to the next level both in funds raised and people engaged. I look forward to working with them as we build a strong and vibrant Israel and Jewish people for generations to come.”


JNF-USA National Campaign Director, Sharon Joy, added: “What an honor to have Susie and Fred as our co-presidents! I love their passion, energy, and excitement. And having Fred, someone who was included in the Hollywood Reporters ‘Top 100 Attorneys,’ as a proud JNF-USA Arts & Entertainment Task Force member is very meaningful. I am truly excited to have the Toczek’s leading our incredible movement into our next chapter of growth.
