Rabbi Dr. Gershon C. Gewirtz

Rabbi Gershon C. Gewirtz, Ed.D., has served the YIB community as Mara d’Asra for more than 29 years. His vision of the YIB as a Caring, Learning, and Social Community has helped transcend and leverage the diverse perspectives that contribute to the vibrancy of YIB. His 25 year engagement with CJP, JCRC and the Vaad HaRabanim has positively impacted our day schools, strengthened kashrus and contributed to the collaboration, cohesion and respect within the Orthodox community and larger Jewish community in Boston. The national organizations of OU, RCA, NCSY and NCYI, have also recognized his leadership with numerous awards.
