President and CEO

Doron Krakow is president and CEO of JCC Association of North America, the largest platform of Jewish engagement on the continent. Under Krakow’s leadership, which began in May 2017, JCC Association is forging new partnerships throughout the Jewish community, deepening its relationship to individual and foundation philanthropy, and strengthening the fabric of Jewish life across the U.S. and Canada.

Krakow brings more than 25 years of experience with national and international Jewish organizations to JCC Association. He previously served as executive vice president of American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev; senior vice president, Israel and overseas at United Jewish Communities (now the Jewish Federations of North America); and national director of Young Judaea. Doron is also the vice-chair of the JPRO Network board, and a board member and Tzofim: Friends of Israel Scouts.

Krakow holds an MBA from Cornell University and a bachelor’s degree in economics from Rutgers University. He and his wife live in Tenafly, New Jersey, where they raised three sons, all of whom are out in the world, one serving in the IDF. The Krakows are longtime members of the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades.
