Israel’s network of care for children with severe complex disabilities, is pleased to announce the appointment of Josh Pruzansky as its Director of Development for the US and Canada. After an extensive selection process, Mr. Pruzansky was the unanimous choice of ALEH’s search committee and International Board of Directors.
An impressive and respected advocate and connector, Mr. Pruzansky will oversee ALEH’s fundraising and community engagement efforts in the United States and Canada, including the development of strategic partnerships, the organization of local and national events, and the cultivation of large and small donors through large-scale educational campaigns and community events highlighting ALEH’s unparalleled medical, rehabilitative and educational offerings for Israel’s disability community and its starring role in the promotion of disability inclusion and equity in Israel and around the world.
“We are so excited to welcome Mr. Pruzansky to the ALEH family. The incomparable dedication of our professional staff members and international volunteers is world renowned, and Mr. Pruzansky’s drive, optimism and commitment to the growth of Jewish education and the promotion of Jewish values make him the perfect addition to our team. These traits will serve him well as he spreads the word about ALEH across North America,” said ALEH’s Director General Rabbi Yehuda Marmorstein.
A resident of New Jersey, Mr. Pruzansky began his 29-year career as the Executive Director of the Yeshiva of the Telshe Alumni in Riverdale, NY, where he was involved with the growth and expansion of the Yeshiva’s campus for nine years. He subsequently served as the Executive Director of Rabbi Pesach Raymon Yeshiva in Edison, NJ, where he retooled the fundraising structure and created a wildly successful Day Camp, which is now entering its third decade. In 2005, Mr. Pruzansky co-founded Yeshiva Me’On HaTorah, now located in Monsey, NY, and continues to serve as a member of its Board of Directors. Most recently, as the New Jersey Regional Director of the OU’s Advocacy Center, he championed the efforts to secure much-needed funding for the area’s nonpublic schools, securing more than 65 million dollars for his constituents over the course of a six-year tenure. An appointee of Governor Chris Christie, he is also a member of the New Jersey-Israel Commission, whose mission is to foster economic, scientific, educational and cultural ties with the State of Israel, one of New Jersey’s most important trading partners.
“It is my privilege to be working with and supporting ALEH’s incredible medical, rehabilitative and special education professionals in Israel, who are achieving miraculous results with Israeli children with severe complex disabilities,” said Mr. Pruzansky. “I look forward to sharing the warmth and wonder of ALEH with Jewish communities across North America, our partners in ensuring the best possible care for and inclusion of Israel’s disability community.”
Since its establishment in 1982, ALEH has provided Israeli children with severe complex disabilities with the best available care and the opportunity to develop to their fullest potentials. Thanks to ALEH’s continuum of loving care from infancy and childhood through adulthood, residents advance well beyond their initial prognoses and live happy, dignified, and meaningful lives. Day after day, ALEH’s professional medical and rehabilitative staff and dedicated volunteers work tirelessly to help the residents reach individualized goals, instill them with self-confidence and pride, and restore hope to their families.
