Hillel director Ron Gubitz named a Wexner Field Fellow

Ron Gubitz, executive director of Tulane Hillel, has been named a Wexner Field Fellow and will be a part of the six such class of Jewish professionals selected to its program. The Wexner Field Fellowship is an exclusive, highly competitive opportunity for Jewish communal leaders. It entails a three-year commitment in which fellows engage with each other as coaches as part of their involvement with Jewish learning and professional development.

The Wexner Foundation has a vast network of 3,000 professional and volunteer leaders in the North American Jewish Community and in Israel.

“It’s an honor to have been selected as a Wexner Field Fellow,” Gubitz announced in an email to the CCJN. “It’s a real testament to Tulane Hillel. I’m eager to build my network and get to engage in so much learning that will benefit Tulane Hillel and the entire New Orleans Jewish community.”

Gubitz, who prior to being named as Tulane Hillel executive director was also a member of the Touro Synagogue board of directors for six years, has been an energetic leader at Tulane and an education administrator at ReNEW Cultural Arts Academy and the John F. Kennedy Center’s Turnaround Arts program. He also had previously served as a teacher with Teach for America.
