​Mimi Werbler

Mimi Werbler, 2nd Vice President, is Fundraising Events Co-Chair of the board for the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights & Genocide Education, and is responsible for raising operating funds. As the daughter and daughter-in-law of local Holocaust survivors, she feels compelled to carry on their legacy and message of "Never Forget—Never Again.”

Werbler has been involved in Holocaust education since 1994, with the establishment of the middle school peer-to-peer Holocaust education project "Zachor" (remember) at Solomon Schechter Day School of Greater Monmouth County. Werbler was an active volunteer there for over 20 years, and also served a term as PTO president.

Since coming to Chhange, Werbler has served on numerous committees, including Generations: Descendants of Holocaust Survivors, for which she was a founding member. She currently leads the popular Yiddish club.

In addition to her work for Chhange, Werbler is an active life member of Hadassah and Special Strides. She worked for ten years teaching arts and crafts at Middlesex County College, in the department of Professional and Community Programs. Werbler graduated from Rutgers University with a double major: a Bachelor of Science in Physician's Assistant and Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. A long-time member of Congregation Sons of Israel, Manalapan, she and her husband Jack live in Morganville, New Jersey. Their two daughters, Annette and Elisa, both live in Brooklyn.
