The entire NJDC family wishes our Treasurer Sheldon Cohen a very happy 85th birthday today. Cohen has been a key leader in our organization and we look forward to many more years of his involvement.
Cohen served as the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service from 1965 until 1969 and has had a long and storied career as one of American’s top tax attorneys. The Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington noted that Cohen “was among the first Washington-born Jews to be appointed to the highest levels of government, and, at age 36, among the youngest.”

Cohen has been involved with several other Jewish and civic organizations and currently is a Director at Farr, Miller, and Washington in Washington, DC.
