I'm very pleased to announce the promotion of Avraham Groll to the
position of Senior Director of Business Operations for JewishGen.
Avraham has been with the organization since 2008. Since that time,
he has worked tirelessly and expertly to help JewishGen regain a
stable financial footing, consistently surpassing self-imposed goals,
and implementing a development and communications strategy that has
helped JewishGen operate "within the black" for the past 6 years.
His skills and character make me confident that his leadership will
help ensure a robust and dynamic future for JewishGen.
In assuming his new duties as Senior Director of Business Operations,
Avraham will direct all non-technical aspects of the daily operations,
and be the point person for SIG leaders and volunteers. In this new
role, Avraham will take the lead in approving new project initiatives
and fundraising proposals; engaging other organizations in potential
partnership agreements; and working to strengthen our organizations
ability to continue its role in helping people research their Jewish
family history and heritage.
Avraham holds a BS in Business Administration >from Ramapo College of
New Jersey, an MBA >from Montclair State University, and is currently
in the final phases of completing an MS in Judaic Studies at Touro
College. His background and experience make him ideally suited for
this new position, and I know you all will be supportive of Avraham
as he assumes his new role, which will have another benefit as well,
for it will allow me to focus on high-level technical needs.
Avraham's promotion will allow me to begin working on a number of
projects that have been delayed, which I now hope to have completed
by the next conference. More details of this will be announced
throughout the year.
Please join me in congratulating Avraham on this well-deserved
