Join us as we celebrate 73 years of Women’s Philanthropy, featuring Rabbi B. Elka Abrahamson, President, The Wexner Foundation
“The Tapestry We Weave, the Stories We Tell”

Rabbi B. Elka Abrahamson oversees the Foundation’s full range of activities in partnership with Foundation chairmen Abigail and Leslie Wexner. Rabbi Abrahamson, a dynamic speaker and an engaging teacher, is optimistic about the Jewish future, owing it to the remarkable leaders she encounters in her rabbinate, many of them Wexner Alumni.  She is a highly regarded leadership consultant and advisor. Elka is a student and teacher of Mussar, Jewish character building. She also loves a good football game, especially if the Vikings are winning.  Rabbi Abrahamson and her husband, Rabbi Misha Zinkow live in Columbus, Ohio, and are Ima and Abba to four millennials.

This program is sponsored by The Dulcie Rosenfeld Family Leadership Enrichment Fund.
