Marc J. Zucker, a partner at the law firm of Weir & Partners LLP, was unanimously elected chairman of the Pennsylvania Jewish Coalition.
The coalition represents Pennsylvania’s Jewish communities before state government and other Pennsylvanians. Issues of importance include public social policies and the funding and regulation related to how human services are delivered.
Zucker succeeds Matthew Handel, who served six years as chairman and will remain on the coalition’s board of directors.
Zucker’s law practice focuses on complex commercial litigation, alternate dispute resolution and appellate advocacy.
He serves on the national board of the Jewish Council of Public Affairs. He is former chair of the Board of Governors of the Philadelphia Bar Association and remains an elected member of its cabinet.
Zucker was a trustee and member of the board of directors of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia from 2007 to 2010 and chaired the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) during that same period.
