Member of Board of Directors
Karen Jinich was born in Lima, Peru, where her family created and founded the Jewish Institutions that provided the necessary foundations to create a strong and vibrant Jewish Community. Karen attended the only Jewish Day School in Lima, “Colegio Leon Pinelo,” where her strong sense of Judaism and Zionism was formed. Karen and her family moved to San Diego 18 years ago. She, and her husband Roberto, chose the San Diego Jewish Academy for their children’s education because it was essential for their family to instill Jewish values and traditions in her children.
Karen is an active Board member of the Jewish Federation Women’s Philanthropy. She has always been involved at The San Diego Jewish Academy, helping at the Parent Teacher Organization, participating in fundraising events, and leading many more committees. She was introduced to The Butterfly Project at the San Diego Jewish Academy, and she is honored to have the opportunity to help such an amazing project grow.
