HUD NE Regional Administrator tours JCHE

Posted: March 28, 2012

Earlier this month, Barbara Fields, HUD's Regional Administrator for New England, was a guest of Amy Schectman and enjoyed a complete tour of JCHE's large Brighton campus. Barbara is one of the country's 10 regional administrators and her position was a Presidential appointment. She was particularly pleased to meet JCHE's residents from Shanghai. Barbara shared a personal story with them. Her parents were able to escape Europe at the start of World War II.  Like many Jewish refugees, her father went to Shanghai. The city was very welcoming to the Jewish community that subsequently formed. Barbara expressed her appreciation to those who gave her father a safe haven during a most unsettling time.
