Donor Mildred Levine gets ready to cut the ribbon at the Levine-Weinberger Jewish Life Center, the new home of the Hillel of Broward and Palm Beach.
The Hillel of Broward and Palm Beach has a new home on the campus of Florida Atlantic University.
More than 200 guests attended the opening of the Mildred & Abner Levine and Ruth & Saul Weinberger Jewish Life Center on November 28. Guest speakers included FAU President Frank Brogan and Hillel President Wayne Firestone.
“I think that a physical space truly strengthens and solidifies the students’ identity,” said Hillel of Broward and Palm Beach Executive Director Darin Diner. “For many years we truly were wandering Jews. We operated out of backpacks and the trunks of cars. And yet that never deterred us. There is now a sense of pride and ownership and, I think, real prestige because of the prominence of this location.”
