JPRO Conference

Columbus welcomed 350 Jewish communal professionals to learn, network, and share best practices together in late May.  The JPRO conference opened with special greetings from Leslie Wexner, who recalled how Ben Mandelkorn influenced his Jewish community involvement and philanthropy.  Mandelkorn was the founder of JPRO’s predecessor organization, as well as the long-time director of both the Columbus Jewish Federation and Foundation.  In 1990, the Columbus Jewish Foundation established JPRO’s Communal Service Award Fund in Ben’s honor.
