Avrum founded Ve’ahavta, Canada’s only Jewish humanitarian organization, in 1996 after a seven year stint raising funds for the UJA/Jewish Federation of Greater Toronto. Avrum has spearheaded a plethora of Veahavta’s programs, worked with hundreds of lay volunteers, as well as leadership from over three dozen countries. He is a blogger and a writer and regularly published in the Canadian Jewish News and other publications. Avrum is an artist and former “restaurant and food” radio and tv personality.
Avrum is Ve’ahavta’s founder and visionary, and our team’s source of guidance and inspiration. Avrum works closely with the senior staff in organizational planning, program development, and fundraising.
When not at work, I am playing or watching hockey with my son, or dreaming up a new plan to repair the world.
