For Judy and Nathan Laufer, supporting Jewish causes is part of their DNA. As the children of Holocaust survivors who were assisted by their Jewish communities, they know firsthand how a helping hand can make a difference. 

The Laufers met and married in Montreal and then moved to Phoenix in the mid-1980s, where Nathan had already set up a medical practice. Judy, who was born in Budapest and grew up in Montreal, worked as a kindergarten teacher and eventually became president of the boards of Solomon Schechter School and King David School, where their son, Andrew, was in the first class. She became actively involved in the Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix and served as the chairperson for B’nai Tzedek Youth Philanthropy Program and for FIDF Phoenix. Recently, she joined the Arizona board of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
