Responding from Jerusalem, Rabbi Berman, Executive Director of OU Israel, declared, “I look forward to working closely with Ron and to welcoming him to OU Israel. When sitting with Ron, you cannot help but be moved by his passion and love for the Jewish people and Israel. He thinks of the community and about his role in strengthening it.”
