Marc has also held civic leadership positions as a member of the Finance Committee of Westchester Reform Temple, the Board of Scarsdale Little League, the Young Leadership Committee of United Jewish Federation, and an alternate on the Scarsdale Planning Board. He currently serves on the Building Committee of the Scarsdale Public Library.
