Remembering Luboml   Images of a Jewish Community

Aaron Ziegelman

Aaron Ziegelman emigrated from Luboml, Poland to the United States with his mother and sister, in 1938. Although his education in this country began at a yeshiva, he attended a public high school because he wanted to become a "real American".

He earned a business administration degree from the City College of New York and is a CPA, although he does not practice accounting professionally.

Mr. Ziegelman is a highly successful real estate entrepreneur who has made a second career of his philanthropy, largely to Jewish causes. He has served as Chairman of the Real Estate Division of the New York UJA - Federation, on the Executive Committee of AIPAC and as Vice-Chairman of CLAL (the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership). At the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College he has served as General Chairman of the Board of Governors since 1986. It was with Mr. Ziegelman's generous support that RRC was able to burn its mortgage in 1984 and he established an endowment fund. He is responsible for the founding of the West End Synagogue in New York City, and is Chairman of the American Society for the Cameri Theatre of Tel Aviv.
Mr. Ziegelman resides in New York City with his wife, Marjorie. They are the parents of two daughters. Amy lives in Tel Aviv with her husband Icho Avital and their two children, Etai and Emma. Jane is married to Andy Coe and they live in Manhattan with their son, Henry.
