In March of 2000, Steve & Paula London hosted a JNF Parlor meeting, invited Susan & Ron Lubin and a beautiful friendship was formed.
Ron is a leader and visionary who dedicated himself to JNF as president from 2004-2006. During his term, he helped to bring the Zone to a new level of fundraising, developed recognition and awareness and increased board membership.
As President Emeritus, Ron is more involved than ever. Nationally, he serves on the Israel Relations Committee and is the National Chair of Green Horizons youth movement, whose mission is to develop leadership, responsibility and environmental involvement within Israeli youth. Locally, Ron is still an active Executive Board Member & serves on our Corporate Sponsorship & Golf Committees.
“Ron is a real Zionist leader with a huge passion for Israel. He has invited many important donors to join our JNF family and leads by example. His whole family is very warm. All of his amazing children were in a special program, spending more than one year in Israel and his son served in the combat unit of the IDF. And finally – you can learn the real meaning of friendship from him,” shared Colonel (Res.) Sharon Davidovich, JNF/KKL Emissary.
Ron is the co-founder of Arch Real Estate Partners LLC. He was previously the Managing Director of Crystal Capital and led the real estate debt and equity investment business. Ron had been with the Bank of America and its predecessors for over 24 years. During that time he held various senior positions including executive vice president and senior banker in the Real Estate Structured Finance Division, senior vice president and region executive in the Home Builder Finance Group and senior vice president and managing director of the Shopping Center Finance Division. Ron has also managed and directed other real estate initiatives including REIT, Portfolio Finance, Community Real Estate, Low-Income Housing Tax Credit and Commercial Real Estate Workout.
Ron and his wife Susan live in Sharon; their three children, Melanie, Jeffrey & Danielle, are all true Zionists.
