SPRINGFIELD – Bethany Young and Alison Silber, two women representing the Springfield Jewish Community Center have been recognized by BusinessWest’s as “40 Under Forty.”
Young, director of Kehillah at the Springfield JCC, holds a BS from Springfield College and an MS from Bay Path University.
“She is able to oversee a successful staff, manage a budget, on top of organizing and implementing successful programming for her department,” said Janice Greenberg, who nominated Young. “Overall, she just gets things done for the individuals in the special needs program. These qualities have made her very worthy of the 40 Under Forty honor.”

The owner of her own family law practice in Longmeadow, she is recognized for assisting clients with post-divorce finances; in particular, helping clients obtain a living wage and financial security to meet their needs.
