About Jonathan Lightman
An attorney by training, lobbyist, association executive, and nonprofit consultant by profession, Jonathan has served as Chair of the JCRC, President and Gabbai Rishon of Mosaic Law, and Chair of the USCJ Shoshana Cardin Awards Committee. A native of Los Angeles, Jonathan grew up with a love of classic rock, baseball, and all things Jewish. He and his wife, Janis, have lived in Sacramento since 1988 where they raised their two sons, Ari and Noah, and are now often seen with their Mini Bernedoodle, Flash.
When not listening to The Beatles, Jonathan is enjoying the baseball season through the MLB package on both radio and TV. As a lifelong baseball fan, he and Janis made their first visit to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown last year where he and a teammate missed winning the day’s big trivia contest by just one questions. As they say, wait until next year!
