We are pleased to cast a spotlight this week on Marc Brown, one of Buffalo Jewish Federation’s Vice Presidents. A proud alumnus of the University of Buffalo School of Law and the new Development Chair for Federation, Marc recently served as Master of Ceremonies for Federation’s spectacular Kick Off on September 20th in UB’s Center for the Arts. As Marc shared during the program: “This is a moment for me when my passions intersect: My passion for the law, that I attribute in large measure to my legal education here at UB, and my passion for Jewish life and Jewish Buffalo.”
“We are so lucky to have Marc on the Board and serving as a Vice President and Development Chair,” added Margie Bryen, Federation president. “He brings with him such a passion for Jewish Buffalo and a desire to share his positive energy with others in the community.”
Marc grew up in Buffalo and over the decades has been a part of many agency partners that fall under the Federation’s umbrella. Currently, his involvement extends to being an active member of the Jewish Community Relations Council, a parent of three students (David, Deborah, and Joshua) at the Ohr Temimim Jewish Day School, Treasurer of the Va’ad HaKashrus of Buffalo, and Vice President of the Young Israel of Greater Buffalo Synagogue. “Each one of these organizations include my “threads” and stories that weave me, my wife, Shira, and our family into the fabric of our community,” reflected Marc.
Professionally, Marc is co-chair of Goldberg Segalla’s Business and Commercial Group. An experienced commercial litigator, he is one of the foremost real estate title litigation and coverage attorneys practicing in New York State and Pennsylvania. Marc’s practice also includes real property tax certiorari proceedings, contractual disputes, personal injury, and collection enforcement. Marc is an adjunct professor at the University at Buffalo School of Law teaching real estate litigation.
