David Furman

I grew up in Portlock Norfolk County where we were the only Jewish family. I celebrated the birth of the State of Israel in 1948 and have actively supported a wide range of Jewish causes ever since. Sitting around the table with other committed Jewish leaders in 1984, I was the first person to fulfill my commitment to launch the Tidewater Jewish Foundation. It is my desire that my children and grandchildren know that they are Jewish and that they too have an obligation to fellow Jews in Tidewater and throughout the world.
