BACKGROUND: Joanne Berezin Zuroff
grew up in Tiffin, Ohio, a town of
20,000 residents one hour south of
Toledo. There were only five Jewish
families in town. Her family was active
in the synagogue located 18 miles away.
As a child and teenager, Zuroff
worked with her parents in the family
business, a clothing store. Her parents
always encouraged her to socialize with
Jewish children. She became active in
the synagogue youth group and fre-

Camp Seagull, where she met her hus-
After she was graduated from Tiffen
Columbian High School in 1959, she at-

she married her husband, who was in-

The Zuroffs then moved to Pitt-
sburgh, where they were drawn to the
Orthodox community. "We liked the
lifestyle. We were looking for something

They also sent their children to a
Jewish day school.

Zuroff enrolled her children in Akiva

attended the school. Zuroff credits Rabbi

be involved in the community.
Zuroff began her volunteer work
with Alpha Omega, a dental auxiliary.
Today she is on the national board of
directors of Amit Women and active in
