“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Paul Kane, a revered professional leader at UJA, whose passion for strengthening Jewish life around the world left an indelible mark on our community. In his capacity as head of fundraising for UJA, Paul helped lead the UJA team in raising over $3 billion during his two decades of leadership and played a key role in shepherding the organization through the 2008 financial crisis, ensuring UJA’s continuous support for its network of partners during that critical time. Paul was a mentor to hundreds of fundraising professionals throughout the Jewish world, had an abiding love for Israel, and up until his death was working on a range of projects to ensure the health and safety of all Israelis. May his memory be for a blessing.”
