Gil has been a relentless advocate for our Jewish community in areas including Jewish education, caring for the vulnerable especially through our Anti-Poverty Initiative, Israel advocacy, and community engagement. He has offered inspired direction on everything from strategic initiatives to ways to mentor staff to the development of deep partnerships with both individuals and agencies that benefit our community.
In his role as Executive Vice President, Gil has overseen both the planning and development functions at CJP and most recently led our 2017 strategic planning process. Gil worked to launch and develop a $45 million initiative to improve Jewish day school education in Greater Boston, directed CJP’s 2008 Strategic Plan, and created a new planning and allocation process to meet the immediate and long-term needs of the Jewish community.
Prior to joining CJP, Gil worked at the Jewish Federation of Cleveland and was an Assistant Professor at Case Western Reserve University. Gil has a Ph.D. from MIT’s Sloan School of Management; an M.A. from Cornell University; and a B.A. from the University of Michigan. He and his family have already moved to the D.C. area to ensure that his children are ready to begin the new school year.
