Aaron Wolff Time (cue MC Hammer music)

Some of you know him as “the tall guy with the hat.”  Others know him as “The WOLFf.”  And still others refer to him as “The Gather the Jews guy.”

Aaron Wolff — co-founder of Gather the Jews — has as many talents as he does names.  And this week, some people make special mention of his talents.

  1. Last week the Washington Jewish Week featured The WOLFf (I fall in the second camp) as an interesting, up-and-coming, and talented young Jewish adult who is making a difference in the community.  You can click here for his interview with the WJW, but you can only read the first paragraph — you have to subscribe for the rest of the article.
  2. The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington recently named Aaron as one of the 2012 Connect Gens Fellows.  As part of this program, Aaron will take a number of classes on Jewish social entrepreneurship, and he will be partnered with mentors in the entrepreneurial world.  Former Jewish Girls of the Week Stacy M. and Ricki M. also became Connect Gens fellows, as did our good friend at the JCC, Ilana W.   You can meet all 10 fellows and read about their projects here
