In the process of researching his criminal ancestor’s past, Ron has traced his roots to England, Poland, Romania, Ukraine, Belarus, and Lithuania. He is a recipient of a Hackman Research Residency Award from the New York State Archives to continue his research of New York Jewish criminals, and Ron appeared on the PBS television series, “The Jewish Americans” as the acknowledged expert on Jewish criminals of New York’s Lower East Side. Born in New York, Ron holds a BS in Engineering from Princeton University and an MBA from the University of Chicago.
