Susan Sher to leave White House

(JTA) — First Lady Michelle Obama’s chief of staff Susan Sher, who has served as an administration liaison to the Jewish community, will leave the White House.

Sher has plans to return to Chicago early next year, Politico reported Tuesday. No successor has been named, according to Politico.

“Susan has brought tremendous skill and dedication to the First Lady’s office, as well as my Administration’s outreach to the Jewish Community and our efforts to pass health care reform, and I thank her for her service,” President Obama said.

Sher began working in the White House Counsel’s Office in January 2009, where she was involved in Obama’s health care reform efforts. She was named chief of staff to the first lady in June of that year.
