In Memory of Ralph Rothschild

Beloved and respected, 86 year-old Holocaust survivor Ralph Rothschild passed away December 13.  A past Tifereth Israel president, Ralph could daven like an angel.  He worked at IBM for three decades until retiring, and then worked another 17 years at the JCC. He ran the JCC’s scholarship program, helping those who otherwise couldn’t afford to participate in Jewish community life.  He distributed over two million dollars with kindness, discretion, and a Jewish heart.  Upon his second retirement, he thanked the Columbus Jewish Foundation for its SCRIP program: “It has been very rewarding to provide assistance to the Jewish needy through the generosity of the Columbus Jewish Foundation.” Ralph will be missed. Oleh V’Shalom.
