Mrs. Judy Gross

Mrs. Judy Gross, Dean Emerita, can unreservedly be called a pioneer in education in Baltimore, developing and nurturing the post-high school secular education of Orthodox women. Over thirty years ago, Mrs. Gross developed a program to provide college courses and degree advisement to local day school students and graduates seeking to remain in an Orthodox environment.

Mrs. Gross was a founder of WITS/Maalot and served as Academic Dean of the General Studies program for over 15 years, guiding and advising over 1000 students who have earned degrees though our program. Along with her expertise in academics, her warmth and personal touch have endeared her to the student and parent bodies. Mrs. Gross made Aliyah in 2013. Much of WITS/Maalot’s success today is built upon the work of Mrs. Gross.
