Ruth Barkan, z’l

The Foundation Board and staff mourn the passing of Ruth Barkan, mother of Steven and Neal  Barkan and grandmother of Foundation board member Josh Barkan.  Ruth and her late husband, Irving, were active community leaders and Foundation fund holders who established endowments for the Foundation grants program, Wexner Heritage Village, and the Billy Barkan JCC High School Basketball Shootout that takes place each year opening doors to high school teams who otherwise couldn’t afford to play.  The JCC’s outdoor sports court is named in son Billy’s memory.
