Amy’s passion for dance began when she took a creative movement class at the University of Judaism with Bella Lewitsky when she was ten years old. With Bella’s recommendation, Amy started ballet classes with Mary Claire Sale and later studied with Lynn Bryson and then with Stanley Holden. While in college Amy performed with an Israeli folk dance group and in 1978 she graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Dance. The following year she married her high school sweetheart Harold and from 1980-81 she performed with Louise Reichlin’s Los Angeles Choreographers and Dancers.While raising her three children she became involved in the Jewish community.
Amy’s philanthropy and dedication to Jewish communal life extends to many organizations including Hadassah and Women’s League for Conservative Judaism. She has served on the Women’s Philanthropy board of The Jewish Federation Valley Alliance since 1988, as well as the Executive Committee of Adat Ari El Sisterhood since 1991 and has served on the newly formed University Women’s board since 2013 at the American Jewish University.
