Cindy and Ben Golub joined WJC when they moved to Mamaroneck 30 years ago and the community felt their presence immediately. Every Rosh Hashanah, we listen for the sound from Ben’s shofar to mark the New Year, as he serves as a Baal Tekiah. For many years, Ben has also served as a WJC Trustee. At the same time, Cindy has prepared meals for countless congregants in need of support because they are homebound, ill, or just had a baby. Cindy has also served on many fundraising and dinner dance committees. The Golubs are quiet mensches, giving of themselves—their time, ideas, hands-on involvement, and support.
Beyond WJC, Cindy and Ben are leaders in the Jewish community, passionate about Jewish education, and believers in service. They have longstanding and meaningful roles at UJA-Federation of NY and The Leffell School, among many others. Cindy is currently Westchester Regional Chair of UJA-Federation of NY, representing the Westchester community on the Executive Committee, and a past chair of UJA-Women. Ben has served as chair of the UJA-Federation campaign at BlackRock since its inception, a trustee of the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, and a trustee of The Leffell School.
Cindy and Ben are the proud parents of Alex, Phillip, Jill, daughter-in-law Mojgan, and future son-in-law Zach. If you ask the Golub children to describe their home, they will undoubtedly say warm, welcoming, and filled with Jewish values and traditions. In addition to being proud parents, Cindy and Ben are—and have always been—devoted children. Ben helped co-author “Kaddishel,” his father’s biographical account of his experiences growing up in Poland, escaping the Nazis, and his journey to America.
Ben is currently the Chief Risk Officer of BlackRock, Inc. and one of the eight original founding partners. When Ben is not working, volunteering, or spending time with family, he can be found captaining his boat around the Long Island Sound, playing tennis, or practicing his flute.
Cindy is a founding principal of G-Squared Advisory LLC- a fee only financial planning firm that helps people establish future financial security, and differentiates itself with its practice area that caters to widowed and divorced women. When she is not working, volunteering, or baking, Cindy loves to travel or walk in the neighborhood with friends.
We hope you will join us on Zoom to celebrate with Cindy and Ben!
