Jennifer Jankel

Jennifer has been Chair of JMI’s Board of Trustees since 2011.  She is the daughter of the renowned bandleader Joe Loss and first became involved with JMI in 1991. She has been instrumental in creating the Joe Loss Lectureship at SOAS in memory of her late father. Jennifer spent her working life in the retail fashion business, specialising in footwear, and was a finalist Business Woman of the Year in the 1980s.  She is a Vice President of NWSS, and was Chair three times of the North West Surrey Synagogue in Weybridge of which she is a founder member. 

When I’m not at JMI I like to: read,  spend lots of time with my four children and seven grandchildren flying in and out of the USA and Spain for weekends to keep up with the widespread family.  JMI and NWSS have allowed me to treat work in the Jewish world as an honour and pleasure.

On my i-Pod: New Orleans early jazz through the golden days of Jazz and Blues, Sinatra, Van Morrison, Chazones, Avishai Cohen, best of the 70s and 80s and so much more.
