Moshe brings over a decade of experience in nonprofit management and fundraising. He previously served as director of development at Mesivta Ateres Yaakov in Lawrence, NY. Moshe joins the JCCRP with a myriad of experience in communal affairs, social services, program management, and development. After studying psychology at Brooklyn College, he began his career as a teacher at Yeshiva Bonim Lamokom’s vocational program, a school for children with special needs located inside Yeshiva Torah Vodaath. In that position, he excelled in providing job training, mentoring, and life-skills classes to young adults with various disabilities. Moshe went on to become a program director at Harmony Services, an OPWDD-certified organization. For six years, he directed a day-hab program that serviced over 75 clients with special needs in a most caring fashion. Of his major accomplishments at this position was founding Camp Kinor Dovid, an inclusive summer camp located in Camp Ma-Na-Vu in Parksville, NY. Aside from creating a summertime haven for special campers, the camp provided much-needed and deserved respite to the families of these young men and women. In addition to establishing the camp, he also directed it for six summers. Although extremely busy and devoted to providing top-level quality care, Moshe continued to develop his professional training. He received administrative and fundraising training at the National Society for Hebrew Day Schools (also known as Torah Umesorah), and at Boston University School of Continuing Education. At both programs he learned a vast amount about nonprofit strategy, while developing long-lasting relationships with his classmates and professors.
