On November 14, 2010, we were delighted to honor Susan and Aron Ain, at a gala featuring a performance by famed Israeli musician Shuly Natan.
About our Honorees
While Susan serves on several boards in the greater Boston area, including CJP, her passion is Jewish education. That is why she is especially proud of her role as a founding member of the MWJDS Board. Our immediate past president, Susan remains committed to making day school education available for children and families in Metrowest. Susan is a trustee of Hebrew College, where she is pursuing a MA in Jewish Studies. She and Aron serve the community through their numerous philanthropic works. Susan is a retired music teacher, frequent visitor to Israel, home gardener, and avid Red Sox fan.
Aron Ain enjoys a full life of professional, communal, and family activities, making an impact both in greater Boston and in Israel. He is the current N.E. Region president of the American Technion Society, the immediate past president of Jewish Family Service of Metrowest, and a supporter and leader at CJP. Aron also serves as the vice-chair of the board of trustees of MetroWest Medical Center and is active with his alma mater, Hamilton College. In his 32nd year at Kronos, Aron is now the company’s CEO. He and Susan have been married for 27 years and have two fabulous daughters, Danielle, 23, and Hillary, 22. Though he probably developed some of his patience growing up as one of five children, Aron’s devotion to the Yankees is tested daily, living with three women who love the Sox.
