Distinguished authority in the property development sector, Jacob Frydman has joined the National Committee for Furtherance of Jewish Education (NCFJE) in a collaboration project aimed at providing food to hundreds of families struggling to provide for themselves financially who took part in Passover Seder in the New York metro area. Frydman believes that the centuries-old practice of giving to “the wheat fund,” or Ma’ot Chitim, which exists to provide low-income families with matzah and other gifts during Passover, is an important responsibility for those who are able to help the less fortunate and feels honored to be able to participate in this special Mitzvah.
Frydman’s philanthropy reflects his commitment to the Jewish community and the faith’s ancient traditions. In addition to contributing to the NCFJE’s Ma’ot Chitim Fund, he has also donated to the Toys for Hospitalized Children program and worked alongside the Released Time program, which allows Jewish children to leave school early one day a week to study Jewish traditions. These programs work together to strengthen the Jewish community now and for future generations. Over his 30-year career in the property investment industry, Jacob Frydman made a positive and lasting impression along the East Coast. Through his various acquisitions and housing development projects, he has renovated over 5 million square feet of American property by building urban retail outlets, medical office buildings, financial center offices, and assisted living facilities. He often speaks at Columbia University and in the Master’s Lecturer series at New York Law School, discussing the business and ethical elements of real estate managers to aspiring students. Frydman is an avid philanthropist, often donating much time and capital to organizations that require financial and emotional assistance. He cares greatly for his Jewish community within New York, and is a supporter of many other charitable committees, including The Chabad of Dutchess County and The Brem Foundation.
