Jewish leader Nan Rich is Florida Senate minority leader


Democratic state senators in Florida elected national Jewish leader Nan Rich as their minority leader.

Rich was elected to lead the 12 Democrats in the state Senate, down two from the previous session following an election in which Florida Democrats also suffered losses in the state House and in the congressional delegation.

Rich, 62, has served as the national president of the National Council of Jewish Women, and as a board member of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.

She also has been active in the American Jewish Congress and the Florida Association of Jewish Federations.

In a profile this week, the Sun-Sentinel noted Rich’s “decades as a national leader in the Jewish community” and quoted praise from Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), a congressional leader on Jewish issues.
