Mintz Member Jeffrey Moerdler has been recognized with the Volunteer of the Year award by The Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty (Met Council), for his work to support the organization’s mission to fight poverty through comprehensive social services.
He accepted the award at Met Council’s annual legislative breakfast held on June 2 at The Yale Club in Manhattan, which was attended by nearly 70 elected officials and hundreds of community leaders, policy makers and heads of affiliated Jewish Community Councils.
Mr. Moerdler is the head of the Real Estate and Communications practices in the firm’s New York office. With experience including almost 30 years as a general commercial real estate attorney, he has worked with many large national companies — particularly in the high-tech, telecommunications, financial services, health care, supermarket, and oil and gas sectors — as well as numerous smaller local clients.
For more than four decades, Met Council has supported and championed families, seniors and adults living in poverty and near-poverty. They provide immediate assistance to New Yorkers in crisis and creates pathways to self-sufficiency through the following programs: America’s largest kosher food pantry system, emergency social services, family violence services, home repairs, benefits enrollment and outreach, and affordable housing.
