Judith A. Kaye: Circle of Excellence Leadership Award

Judy Kaye has focused on Jewish life, healthcare, and education since leaving her legal career long ago to “stay home” with her family. 

She is a longtime member of CJP’s Board of Directors, where she chairs its Committee on Development and chaired the Annual Campaign, the Commission on Strategic Priorities, and the Economic Response Task Force.  

She is a Trustee of the Jewish Federations of North America. Judy serves on the Board of ImpactIsrael, the U.S. affiliate of Yemin Orde Youth Village, and its national-scale program for at-risk youth in Israel, and she recently chaired the search for its new CEO. Closer to home, she chaired the search for the Senior Rabbi of Temple Shir Tikva and is a past Board President of Jewish Family & Children’s Service.  

Judy served on Brigham and Women’s Hospital’s Campaign Cabinet and is a member of their Neurosciences Advisory Council and the Mass General Brigham Corporation.  She has served on the boards of Middlesex School and Nashoba Brooks School, where she was Board Chair. 

She is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Chicago Law School. 

Judy and her husband Steve live in Wayland. Their three adult children teach them something new every day.
