The Union for Reform Judaism has named Ruben Arquilevich to the newly created role of Vice President of URJ Camps, NFTY, and Immersive Experiences.
Arquilevich served as director of URJ Camp Newman for more than 25 years and, more recently, was named URJ Director of Camping and Youth. His exceptional vision and extraordinary leadership helped evolve the URJ’s operations in California through focused investment in year-long teen engagement. Now, he will lead teams across North America in increasing and strengthening the URJ’s year-round programming offerings for individuals of all ages, ultimately creating a more holistic approach to sustained engagement.
Arquilevich followed Paul Reichenbach, URJ’s long-time Director of Camping and Israel Programs, who announced his retirement earlier this year.
