Julie Teicher Concludes Successful Three-Year Term as Jewish Family Service Chair
After more than ten years in leadership roles with Jewish Family Services of Metropolitan Detroit (JFS), Maddin Hauser shareholder Julie Teicher recently concluded her term as chair of the board of directors. She proudly led the active 36-member board, which provides oversight to the organization. Julie was elected to the position in 2019 and will continue serving as immediate past chair.
Established in 1928, JFS provides compassionate, personalized services to the Jewish community and to the broader Detroit community. Their services are uniquely tailored to the specific needs of each individual or family and center on three core areas: services for older adults, mental health and wellness, and safety net services.
Inspired by Jewish values of strengthening lives through service to others, some of the specialized JFS support includes suicide prevention education for the LGBTQ+ community, Holocaust survivor support, a postpartum support group for new mothers with children under six months of age, and a well-respected Legal Referral Service. JFS has provided critical support to countless people in the Detroit community for nearly a century and continues today through the dedicated work of volunteers and donors.
Devoted to JFS and its mission, Julie has held various responsibilities since 2012, including treasurer, vice-chairperson, and chair of the finance and audit committees.
Julie’s law practice centers on business-related insolvency and bankruptcy issues and handling cases in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, other federal courts, state courts, and dispute resolution forums. Her clients include debtors, creditors, receivers, purchasers, and parties of interest in bankruptcy and receivership matters at the federal and state levels.
