Ruthie Warshenbrot, director of the Wexner Field Fellowship at The Wexner Foundation, received the Larry S. Moses Outstanding Young Professional Award Nov. 14 at the 18th annual reception in honor of Columbus Jewish Community Professionals.
Over 90 people attended the event, hosted by JewishColumbus and The Wexner Foundation.
The Moses award was established in 2012 to honor Larry Moses’ 25 years of leadership at The Wexner Foundation in New Albany. The award honors a young professional who has provided exceptional service to the local Jewish community.
“I am glad that our community recognizes the importance of investing in young professionals, something that has made a difference to me throughout my career,” Warshenbrot said in a news release. “Thank you for recognizing me with this honor and for prioritizing young professionals and investing in our future community.”
The award, which includes an $1,800 grant for professional development, is funded by JewishColumbus, the Jewish Community Center of Columbus, Wexner Heritage Village, Jewish Family Services, The Ohio State University Hillel, Columbus Jewish Day School and Columbus Torah Academy.
