Former Ohio Chancellor to Head Hillel

Jul 16, 2013

Ohio’s Former Chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents is taking a new job. Eric Fingerhut has been named the President and CEO of the Hillel Foundation, an organization that helps Jewish college aged students. Fingerhut says he’s excited about this new possibility.

"I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to bring together the two passions of my life – education and my connection to the Jewish world," says Fingerhut.  Nothing would make me happier than for this to be the job that  spend the rest of my professional career in and make a difference everyday."

In addition to most recently serving as the Chancellor of Ohio's Board of Regents, Fingerhut has served in the state legislature and congress. He will take over the helm at Hillel later this summer.
