Debby Hirshman, the indefatigable force behind what could be the largest Jewish community center in America (the $85 million JCC in Manhattan) was suddenly let go as its executive director last week, according to JCC officials.
"We asked for her resignation," said Peter Joseph, co-chairman of the JCC's board of directors. Joseph declined to discuss specifics whether the sudden departure was as a result of a particular incident.
Joseph said Hirshman's departure was effective Sept 29.
