Lynn serves as director of public and corporate communications for the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia.

Media relations is one of her chief responsibilities and greatest loves. Each week, she is responsible for developing feature stories for the Federation section profiling initiatives that have impacted the lives of Jews here, in Israel and in the former Soviet Union.

She also writes about the men and women who volunteer their time, talent and resources to ensure that Federation is able to raise the funds it needs to make a difference.
