Todd Polikoff

Todd S. Polikoff served as President & Chief Executive Officer of the Jewish Nevada (formerly Jewish Federation of Las Vegas) from 2015 to 2018. Todd is a graduate of Stockton University and earned his MBA at Cleveland State University. He has three children: Samuel, Shira and Jordan.

Born in 1971 to a steelworker and hairdresser, Jack and Judy Polikoff, Todd grew up in Philadelphia, became a bar mitzvah there, and shocked his mother when he explained he was putting college on hold to move to Israel. Todd’s long career in leadership at the Jewish Federation and AIPAC has taken him to New Jersey, Delaware, Texas, Ohio and Nevada.
