Brosgol, who took the reins of Prozdor in 2011, was among 18 winners of Combined Jewish Philanthropies’ inaugural Chai in the Hub contest, which honors individuals 22 to 45 who are making a significant impact on Boston Jewish life. Winners were selected by CJP’s Young Leadership Division based on nominations from the community.

“I’m thrilled to be included in this group of inspiring and talented young leaders," Brosgol said. "Some of these people are my colleagues; some I haven’t met yet but am excited to get to know.”

The winners’ list includes rabbis, lawyers, activists and artists, to name a few. They will be honored Nov. 16 at the Chai Society Mega Event at the Hyatt Regency Boston.

“Dan is one of the unsung heroes of the Boston Jewish community,” said Hebrew College President Daniel Lehmann, “and we’re thrilled that he has been recognized for his contributions to Jewish teen education.”

Brosgol, of Bedford, is a 2000 graduate of Brandeis University, where he majored in politics, and holds a Master of Jewish Education from Hebrew College. He is currently working on his Doctor of Education at Northeastern University.

Brosgol is a former fellow of PresenTense, a CJP program for Jewish innovators in their 20s and 30s, and is a regular blogger at JewishBoston.com.

Before joining Hebrew College, Brosgol was for three years the executive director of Kesher Newton, a Hebrew School and after-school program for children K-8. Prior to that, he served as Jewish programs coordinator at The Rashi School.
