The Boulder JCC is thrilled to announce that Mark Megibow will succeed Phil Rubinstein as the J-Teen Director. Phil is moving to Los Angeles to prepare for rabbinical school, and we wish him well in his future endeavors.
Mark Megibow has devoted the last 12 years of his life to serving and mentoring the teens of Boulder County, with a focus on Jewish organizations such as BBYO, CAJE’s Hebrew High, and now Boulder JCC’s J-Teen program. Through these organizations, Mark has helped hundreds of students build their life skills, relationships, and leadership. Part of his personal mission in life is to help high school teens figure out who they are, what they stand for, and how to be their best selves. In addition to his work with Jewish teens, Mark is also the founder of The Boulder Loft, which opened at Twenty Ninth Street Mall in 2010 as a combination dance club, cafe, and “sports bar” for high school teens of Boulder County.
I am excited to work with the J-Teen members and help them continue to build this program into the most awesome thing it can be for Jewish teens in our community. Phil and the council have created an awesome program over the last few years. It is an honor to continue this incredible work. I’m looking forward to discovering what we can accomplish together.”
Jonathan Lev, Executive Director of the Boulder JCC, feels that hiring Mark is a great win for the community:
Mark’s great rapport with teens, connections in Boulder and the Jewish community and his strong mentorship background, make him a great fit for this position. I am excited to work with Mark as we continue to build out our teen program this year and into the future.”
Mark started work at the Boulder JCC on Monday. We hope you will join the board and staff of the JCC by welcoming Mark back to our community.
