On May 26, 2015, Hillel International was pleased to honor Cindy and David Shapira for their extraordinary leadership of the Jewish world; University of Miami President Donna Shalala for her leadership and for her strong support of Jewish life on campus; and Michael Brooks for his lifetime of inspiring young Jewish adults to become leaders.
The evening included a panel discussion on excellence with the four honorees, moderated by Hillel International President and CEO Eric D. Fingerhut. Those gathered also heard from several Jewish students, who briefly shared their personal stories of Hillel’s impact on their lives.
With gratitude to our generous supporters, we are thrilled to have raised one million, three hundred and fifty thousand dollars to continue our Drive to Excellence and building the Jewish future.
