Gershon was born in Melilla and grow up in Ceuta, both cities in North Africa. He went to Seville, Spain, to study business. After graduation Gershon became involved with several Jewish institutions around the world. He began in Cordoba, promoting Casa de Sefarad, the first privately-owned Jewish museum in Spain, and Casa Mazal, a Jewish restaurant where he was an adviser. Later he went to Krakow, where he helped Rabbi Segal found Beit Krakow, the first Reform Jewish community in the city since the Holocaust as well as volunteering at the Krakow JCC. Gershon also worked with Rabbi Boaz Pash from Shavei Israel to help integrate "Polish Hidden Jews" into the community. He then joined MASA, and spent a year in Tel Aviv, learning Jewish studies and Jewish leadership in the Masul Ishi program. Gershon is now back in Andalusia, and is currently the cultural manager of the Jewish Center in Seville, sharing with visitors the impressive Sephardic legacy of the city, as well as that of Cordoba and Toledo. Every day he welcomes Jews and non-Jews from different backgrounds who share an interest in the Jewish community and enjoys turning a “cultural activity" into a meaningful personal experience. Gershon is also a board member of Beit Rambam. Gershon feels that he has been instrumental in injecting energy and life into the Jewish community of Seville, which was rather moribund before his arrival.
