Suzanne Gaba Aisenberg’s energy, passion and commitment to inclusion and support for individuals with special needs drives her efforts as a professional and a parent. She joined the board of Matan in 2014 and was elected board president in 2016. Her involvement with Matan began many years prior when her younger son required additional support to attend Park Avenue Synagogue’s Congregational School. Matan provided the teacher training and curriculum guidance to enable his successful engagement at PAS. In addition to her involvement with Matan, Suzanne serves as a trustee of Park Avenue Synagogue and Co-chair of its Inclusion Committee; on the board of NEXT for Autism; and is a member of the New York State Commission on National and Community Service. From 1990 through 2015, Suzanne was a professional in the non-profit sector – first as a program officer at the Atlantic Philanthropies and then as consultant to non-profit organizations and foundations on governance and infrastructure issues. She continues to bring her expertise in these areas to the organizations with which she serves as a volunteer.
