Jewish Federation of Greater OKC names new executive director

The Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City recently selected Roberta Clark as its new executive director, the nonprofit’s board president said Friday.

Clark will replace the organization’s longtime executive director Edie Roodman, who is retiring.

Clark is currently the regional director of the North Texas/Oklahoma Regional Office of the Anti-Defamation League in Dallas. In a news release, Lori Blumenthal, board president of the Jewish Federation, said Clark will assume her new duties on Dec. 16.

Clark’s comments about her new post were shared in the federation’s recent news release.

“I am so honored to be selected to serve the Jewish Federation as your next executive director. While I have had the pleasure of meeting many Federation and community leaders through the interview process, I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know everyone,” Clark said.

“The Federation has a great legacy of building the Jewish community, supporting Eretz Yisrael and developing significant relationships throughout the greater Oklahoma City area. I can’t wait to join you in this important work."

The Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City will celebrate its 75th anniversary with a gala event in November.
