With the blessing of Sam's family,
JFSA has created the Sam Lieberman Memorial Fundraiser to honor Sam’s life and commitment to the Agency and to continue to help those in need in our community.
In 2019, JFSA assisted over 17,000 community members in need and the need is greater now than ever before as the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the demand for JFSA's Food Pantry and Mental Health Counseling Services.
Our Dear Friend and Board Member Samuel Lewis Lieberman, age 58, passed away Friday April 3, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
At his core, Sam was a social being who thrived on connection to other people. Sam devoted all of his life and energy to helping others—most notably in Las Vegas where he lived for almost 40 years.
He was born with cerebral palsy, which was a significant physical disability, but he never let that get in the way of anything he wanted to do, and he never complained.
As an adult, Sam worked with boundless energy as an advocate for several important causes—including as a trusted aide to Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, Chairman of the Nevada Democratic Party, a Board Member of Nevada PEP (an organization devoted to parents of children with disabilities), President of Congregation P’nai Tikvah and member of the Board of Regents of the Nevada System of Higher Education.
He was also a kind, warm, funny and loyal friend to so many people of all ages and backgrounds.
Sam’s personal challenges and his involvement in his community made him an excellent person to serve on the JFSA Board of Directors. As an organization that is committed to assisting the most vulnerable in our community, Sam’s passion for advocacy and help for others gave him a strong voice for those who often did not have a voice of their own.
We miss you Sam!
May Your Memory Be A Blessing.
