Deby, along with her husband Jeff, has been involved with JNF’s Orange County board and region for nearly 40 years. With JNF, Deby has discovered that there were vast aspects
of Israel about which she knew very little, and now, as a member of the Task Force on Disabilities, serves on the subcommittee for Kibbutz Grofit – Red Mountain Therapeutic Riding Center. Deby also speaks to community groups about Israel and Judaism. A former Conservative cantor and accountant, Deby now spends her time volunteering with JNF, raising an extensive organic garden, and visiting her children and grandchildren in Israel.
