As JFS Orlando celebrates 40 years of serving the community, we take a moment and highlight one of our board members. Lynn Minkow is the daughter of Audrey and David Pearlman, who were avid supporters of JFS Orlando, and provided the funding that endowed the Pearlman Emergency Food Pantry. 

Lynn is a graduate of Tulane University and holds an MBA in Marketing from New York University. She has 2 children and one grandson. She has been a fashion stylist with the Etcetera Collection for 18 years, and works nationally with the company. Her hobbies are oil painting, yoga and Pilates and worldwide travel.  

When asked why she serves on the board for JFS Orlando, Lynn replied, “I serve to continue the vision and work of my parents. The work of JFS impacts so many of the less fortunate in our community and it is a way that I am able to help make a positive difference in their lives.” Lynn hopes that JFS will still be helping the Central Florida community in the next 40 years.
