Weinberg Foundation Hires New Program Director
The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, one of the largest private foundations in the United States, has hired a new program director to deal with Jewish and Israel issues.
Rafi Rone will manage grants to help low-income and vulnerable adults in Israel, in addition to grants supporting Jewish communal causes, the Baltimore-based foundation announced Wednesday.
The foundation distributed about $200 million to an array of Jewish and Israeli causes over the past three years (including grants to JTA).
Before joining the Weinberg Foundation, Rone was vice president of Jewish and Israel initiatives at the Joseph and Harvey Meyerhoff Family Charitable Funds in Baltimore. . .
