Matthew Maryles Speaks to Yeshiva University Fellows About Volunteerism

The fellows in Yeshiva University’s “Certificate in Jewish Philanthropy” Program spent an evening listening to the experiences of well-known lay leader Matthew Maryles. Mr. Maryles is the past president of numerous organizations including the Yeshivah of Flatbush, Young Israel of Flatbush and The Gesher Foundation. Mr. Maryles is the past treasurer of the UJA-Federation of New York and currently serves Yeshiva University as a member of the Board of Trustees and Chair of the Audit Committee. In addition to leadership roles, Matthew and his wife, Gladys, are generous philanthropists who support many Jewish causes that match their philanthropic priorities.

Mr. Maryles shared that organizations can only successfully raise funds if donors are confident that the funds are managed responsibly. “Transparency and accountability have come a long way over the past 40 years. Board members are responsible to set up and maintain proper protocols for effective governance of the organization.”

According to one fellow from Bergen County, Amy Vogel, who is the Director of Development at Yeshivat Noam, “Mr. Maryles shared anecdotes about his volunteer experiences that were informative and inspiring. He shared that he divides his time, decisions and resources into his three life priorities: family, career and the Jewish community. As a career professional dedicated to Jewish education, it was energizing that we share the same values and goals.”
