Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters is thrilled to announce that we will be honoring long time and cherished volunteer leaders Joseph Morgart and Elyse & Ben Marsh at The BIG Bash on May 18, 2023, at the Museum of Science. 


Joe has been actively involved in our Agency for over 25 years in countless ways. Not only did he serve as the Chair of our Agency’s Board of Directors but is currently the Chair of our Endowment Board.  To top that, his son Alex, shares his father’s passion and is now a Big Brother, and his daughter Lauren shall soon become a Big Sister!


Elyse was a member of our Board of Directors for 20 years and has been a volunteer in our Friend 2 Friend Program and matched with her friend Allison for 15 years!  Elyse met Allison at the JBBBS Community Seder where she was volunteering with her son.  They were introduced by JBBBS staff who thought they would make a “good match.”  Elyse’s son (12 at the time) helped convince her to become a volunteer.  They have been in each other’s lives for big moments like Allison’s Bat-Mitzvah and small moments like painting pottery and eating Chinese food together.


Ben has been a Big Brother in our Children’s program since 2016 when his Little Brother Mike was 12.  They love to go out and find new restaurants and have probably gone to 50 movies (which Elyse would never want to go to!)  They have also attended many Red Sox & Bruins games.  Ben has been able to teach many life lessons to Mike throughout their match.  Steering a kayak, bowling, tennis and golf are just a few highlights.  Mike is now in college and benefiting from JBBBS’ College Scholarship Program.


JBBBS could not be prouder to honor these three tremendously deserving long-time friends and volunteers!!!
