Chief Operating Officer
Aaron Abramson is a chief operating officer with Jews for Jesus. He was raised in a Jewish family in Seattle before relocating to Israel as a teenager. He attended an Orthodox Jewish seminary and served in the Israeli military. Upon completion of his service, Aaron took a year to travel, which proved to be both a physical and spiritual journey. He was challenged to read the New Testament and had a life-changing encounter with God. Out of a passion to see others’ lives similarly transformed, he joined Jews for Jesus in 2000. During his time with Jews for Jesus, he’s served as a missionary, director of recruitment, launched Jews for Jesus’ Young Adult Ministry, launched Massah, our outreach to Israeli backpackers, as well as served as our New York mission’s director. He holds a BA in biblical and intercultural studies from All Nations Christian College in England and an MPA from New York University. Aaron and his wife, Victoria, have three children and currently reside in New York City.
