Local real estate investor Isaac Pretter was presented with the Julius Rosenberg Memorial Award on Nov. 21 by The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore to honor his years of leadership in Baltimore’s Jewish community. The award is presented annually to a young person who shows exceptional personal contributions and commitment to building the community.
For nine years, Pretter has been a lay leader with many of The Associated’s agencies. Engaging the Orthodox community in the federation’s work, soliciting for the annual campaign and serving on the board of The Morton J. and Louise D. Macks Center for Jewish Education, the Real Estate Industry Group Committee and Associated Jewish Charities are among his list of contributions. He has also participated in The Associated’s Young Leadership Council and served on Jewish Federations of North America’s National Young Leadership Cabinet.
Upon accepting the honor, Pretter recognized that his work for the community is not yet finished.
“I am honored to be selected for the Julius Rosenberg Award,” he said. “It is a big responsibility and privilege to follow in the footsteps of the past awardees who have had and continue to have such a lasting positive impact on our special community.”
In Pretter’s professional life, he is a founding principal of Mosaic Realty Partners, a private real estate investment firm, which specializes in office, retail and industrial real estate investments in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Pretter is a graduate of Ner Israel College, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Talmudic law before attending Johns Hopkins University, where he earned an MBA in finance.
He lives with his wife and five children in Northwest Baltimore.
