Jewish Daily Forward ranks 'overpaid, underpaid' nonprofit bosses

Alex Stroker, head of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, collected $451,000 last year (and most of his board, you can be sure, will say he's worth every dollar).

Sound like a lot? His counterpart in Cleveland was paid $722,000.

Also, the head of the Republican Jewish Coalition collected more than three times the salary of the National Jewish Democratic Council. Read the full list by the Jewish Daily Forward and a team of Wharton scholars here. "Overpaid/underpaid" comparisons here.
