Fonda Schepps Arbetter was born in 1956 in Dallas, Texas. Her great-grandparents, Nathan and Freida Schepps, founded Schepps Dairy in Russia before coming to Texas and continuing the family business. Fonda attended preschool at Congregation Shearith Israel and years later met her husband at one of the singles’ events she had put together at the Jewish Community Center. Fonda has been a very active member in the Jewish community, having been inspired by her father’s involvement and hard work. She has been on the Board of Directors for Congregation Shearith Israel and has displayed leadership in many other Jewish organizations.
