Director of ‘Friends of Ahava Village’
Mr. Grin is currently focusing on managing his family office and managing his Charitable Foundation. The main focus of the Charitable Foundation is on projects that will enhance and improve the lives of kids from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The goal of the Foundation is to provide the kids with as safe and as supportive environment as possible, help the kids achieve higher academic levels and expose them to the same opportunities that kids from normal families would have. We believe that by accomplishing the above, kids from disadvantaged backgrounds have a much better chance of breaking out of the disadvantaged surroundings and achieve success in their lives.

Mr. Grin, is a Certified Public Accountant (ISR), and received an M.B.A. in Finance and Operations Systems from Tel Aviv University, Israel, and a B.A. degree in Economics and Accounting from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
