Daniel Rubin currently serves as a board member for the JCC. He has assumed leadership roles in numerous Jewish organizations. He served as Chairman of National Young Leadership Cabinet of UJA (1987), and later, became president of UJA of Bergen County (1994-1996). Embodying the philosophy and principles of the Anti-Defamation League, he was also awarded the ADL Torch of Liberty Award in 1990.

Growing up as a child in Bergen County, the JCC was Daniel’s “home away from home” and his devotion for the agency is in his blood. His parents, Syril and Leonard Rubin, were JCC founding members, and his father served as president, chairman and visionary – Mr. JCC personified. Passionate about sports and education and the need for young people to strengthen their connection to their Jewish culture and faith, Daniel was instrumental in helping the JCC become a host site for the JCC Maccabi Games in 2003 and then co-chaired the Games. He oversaw a Marketing Task Force that helped the JCC revitalize its image; and then served as the JCC’s most immediate past president from 2004-2007.

He serves on the boards of UJA NNJ, Jewish Home and Rehabilitation Center, Englewood Hospital and Medical Center; and the Tel Aviv Foundation. He has four children: Jed (and wife Brandi), Jamie (and husband Ted Bloomberg), Rebecca (and husband Alan Canarick) and Julie, and eight grandchildren, Judah, Charlotte and Micah, Lenny, Zoe, Mia, Eden, and Lev.
