Ronald L. Dubrow, 68, of Voorhees, a principal in an accounting firm there who was an executive for religious and civic organizations in South Jersey, died of an aortic rupture on Tuesday, Dec. 9, at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Born in Philadelphia, Mr. Dubrow graduated from Springfield High School in Montgomery County and earned a bachelor's degree in accounting at what is now Philadelphia University.

For several years he was a partner in the Cherry Hill accounting firm Dubrow & Kelman, a daughter, Jennifer Weiss, said.

About 10 years ago, she said, he merged his firm with what is now the Gold Gerstein Group in Voorhees.

Harry Grossman, an ophthalmologist and family friend, said in an interview that Mr. Dubrow "was one of the most philanthropic and kindhearted individuals you would ever want to meet."

"He was excessively generous with his time and his money for a whole host of causes. He did so much for so many people."

Mr. Dubrow's daughter said that he was the current president and a founding member of the Boys and Girls Club of Camden County. He was also a member of the board of directors of the Cooper Foundation and a board member of the Asian Financial Corp. of Philadelphia, she said.

Mr. Dubrow was a past treasurer and member of the executive committee and board of directors for the Jewish Community Foundation in Cherry Hill, she said.

He also was a past vice president of the Jewish Family and Children's Service of Southern New Jersey and a past president and member of the executive committee and the board of directors of Congregation Beth El in Voorhees, she said.

Besides his daughter, Jennifer, Mr. Dubrow is survived by his wife, Rande; daughter Rachel Smith; a brother, and four grandchildren. His first wife, Ellen, died in 1998.

A visitation was set from noon Thursday, Dec. 11, at Congregation Beth El, 8000 Main St., Voorhees, before a 1 p.m. funeral service there.

Donations may be sent to the Ellen Dubrow Developmental Disability Fund at Jewish Family and Children's Service, Suite 150, 1301 Springdale Rd., Cherry Hill, N.J. 08003.
