Mary became involved in Women’s Philanthropy as a Lion of Judah through her leadership with the Hebrew Academy, a community partner of Jewish Federation of Orange County.
Her parents, Harry and Hilda Eisen, of blessed memory, survived the Holocaust and started Norco Ranch shortly after their arrival in the United States in 1948. As strong business owners, they modeled leadership in business and commitment to the Jewish community through their years of generous philanthropy to Hebrew Academy. Mary served as Vice President of Norco Ranch for over 20 years. During that time, Norco Ranch became the largest shell egg processor and egg-products distributor west of the Mississippi!
She is a past president of the Hebrew Academy’s Board of Directors, has served on the JFOC Women’s Philanthropy Council since 2015, and is a committed Lion of Judah. On March 20, she will be honored with the Visionary Award at the Hebrew Academy Annual Visionary Awards Dinner. Mazel tov to Mary!
Mary’s commitment to Women’s Philanthropy is a testament to the important work Jewish Federation of Orange County does every in our Jewish community. As a Lion of Judah for more than 30 years, she inspires philanthropic giving and leadership among her peers and the next generation of Jewish leaders.
