ORT America has announced that Ariel Frechtman will join the organization as its new director of the Southeast Region, covering Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, North and South Carolina and Alabama.

Frechtman, who grew up in New Jersey and graduated from Montclair State University with a degree in criminal justice, has served Jewish nonprofits for the past seven years, most recently as a campaign executive at the Jewish National Fund-USA. After successfully expanding the young philanthropy campaigns in both regions, she was promoted to associate director.

Previously, Frechtman served as young leadership director at the Jewish Federation of Jacksonville, where she launched the community’s first young leadership campaign.

At the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, she led community engagement and managed relationships with local partners. She also curated the community’s inaugural 40 Under 40 Mission to Israel, which took current and emerging Jewish and non-Jewish leaders on a week-long trip to experience the overseas work of Federation.

Frechtman participated in the first cohort of JFNA’s Next Gen Fellowship led by M2: The Institute for Experiential Jewish Education and the Center for Creative Leadership. As a lay leader in Atlanta’s Jewish community, she was a member of the Young Leadership Board for Conexx, America’s Israel Business Connector; chaired ORT NextGen’s My School service event; and was a mentor for Career Up Now, where young professionals learn to advance their careers while incorporating Jewish values into their lives.

Now in its 100th year, ORT America is a non-profit organization consisting of thousands of people throughout the United States who share a common, binding interest in supporting ORT, Israel and the Jewish people. Based in New York City, the organization has a presence in eight regions across the country.
