As 2016 begins, the Wexner Foundation, has announced several staff transitions and changes:
Cindy Chazan, Vice President of the Foundation, has transitioned to the reduced-time position of Senior Advisor and Or Mars and Rabbi Jay Moses have been promoted as Vice Presidents of The Wexner Foundation. Or and Jay have each been associated with the Foundation for many years, starting with their graduate school years as Wexner Graduate Fellows. Most recently, Mr. Mars served as Director of the Graduate Fellowship and Rabbi Moses as the Director of the Wexner Heritage Program. They will continue their work with these successful programs and expand their responsibilities. Moses and Mars will be co-leading a series of “Wexner Summits,” a new initiative which will bring together Wexner alumni for collaborative action on key issues facing the Jewish world and Israel.
A new addition to the Foundation, and an occasional eJP contributor on teen philanthropy, Stefanie Zelkind has been engaged as the Director of the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program. Stefanie is the founding Director of the Jewish Teen Funders Network. Together with her family, Stefanie will be relocating to Columbus from her current home in Brooklyn, New York later this winter.
We wish all the staff at Wexner much success as they go forward.
