HONORING

Ron Burton

Ron Burton, in the words of his friend, Jason Friedland, “loves the Jews.” Ron proudly served as the eleventh president of the Westchester Jewish Council, the Jewish community relations council for 160 Jewish organizations and synagogues in Westchester. Known by many as the “Connector General” – a title that reflects his passion for bringing people and organizations together – Ron took the Council to new heights during his tenure in the realms of Israel advocacy, governmental relations, and social media. Ron currently serves as an ambassador of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee. Above all, however, Ron is a proud Schechter Westchester dad.

While Waterford, Connecticut may not be known for its eruv or lean kosher pastrami, it does lay claim to being Ron’s childhood home. Ron’s parents helped found a Solomon Schechter school in nearby New London, and otherwise provided their sons with a life infused with Judaism and community service.

A product of Camp Ramah and USY (United Synagogue Youth), Ron has always loved all things Jewish and has enjoyed spreading that love to other Jews of all denominations. Prior to taking on the Council presidency, Ron served on the board of directors of the American Jewish Committee’s Westchester Chapter, and as the president of the Westchester Jewish Center’s brotherhood. He helped create UJA-Federation of New York’s New Rochelle Family Campaign, as well as AIPAC’s (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) Westchester Leadership for Tomorrow initiative.

Ron served on the board of trustees at Schechter Westchester for six years. He has been a vocal and visible parent ambassador, and has led day school advocacy trips to Albany, a well as initiatives in Westchester. He values the many strong Schechter Westchester relationships forged at Shabbat tables across the county. His fondest SW memories, however, revolve around cheering his kids on to victories on the sports fields and to successes at science fairs and siddur assemblies.

Professionally, Ron has been with the real estate law firm of Goldfarb & Fleece LLP since 1992, where he became a partner in 2000. He represents Kaplan, Inc. and the Rudin family interests, among other clients.

Ron received his BA from Columbia College and his JD from Columbia University. His claim to fame in college was that he was the radio play-by-play announcer for the Columbia sports teams and never called a football win in his four-year tenure.

What Ron cherishes the most, however, is the Jewish home he has built in New Rochelle with his wonderful wife, Jocelyn, a much-renowned real estate broker at Houlihan Lawrence, and their three (most-of-the-time) terrific children, Ben (Class of 2015), Maddie (Class of 2017), and Zach (Class of 2022), who have all benefitted – and continue to benefit – greatly from Schechter Westchester.
