The UJA-Federation of New York, America’s largest Jewish federation, chose Eric S. Goldstein to serve as its new CEO on Thursday, replacing John Ruskay, who has run the organization for 15 years and will be retiring in July. While his election was initially reported by the Jewish Daily Forward on Wednesday, the selection of the financial litigation lawyer and current vice chair of the UJA-Federation was officially confirmed by the organization’s board immediately following the election Thursday evening.

EJewishPhilanthropy, an online publication read by many Jewish communal professionals, wrote that the appointment of Goldstein, “a lay leader with no known professional work experience in the nonprofit world,” is being described as a “tsunami for communal professionals – particularly the up and coming working in the North American federation system.”

“For decades younger professionals have moved to other communities all the while being groomed for more senior roles,” eJewishPhilathropy wrote. “Taken together with recent choices at other federations to hire ‘outside’ CEO’s, many are concerned about their own career trajectories.”
