Ferne Kushner does everything with a full heart. She enjoys charity work, and volunteers for jobs others might not find appealing, including serving as the groundskeeper at the Keneseth Israel cemetery. “You have a lot of people under you,” her husband of 62 years joked. She has also been a board member at the JCC and KI. Her longest volunteer commitment was 40 years of service to the Red Cross. She is also an avid teacher, having taught at the JCC nursery school. She now offers knitting lessons.
