||A Note from Dana Raucher
At The Samuel Bronfman Foundation, we believe in the power of ideas, and we support thought leaders who infuse Jewish life with intellectual dynamism. In this newsletter, we highlight several of those thought leaders.
We want to take the opportunity to congratulate, Rabbi Jeffrey A. Summit, Neubauer Executive Director of Hillel at Tufts University. Rabbi Summit has been an inspiration to generations of college students, and continues to be a leading thought leader in the Hillel movement. Earlier this month, Rabbi Summit received the inaugural Edgar M. Bronfman Award at Hillel's Annual Renaissance Dinner. This award was established by Hillel International, in collaboration with The Samuel Bronfman Foundation, to celebrate Edgar's legacy as the Founder of Hillel's International Board of Governors. Rabbi Summit's deep and passionate devotion to thousands of Jewish students at Tufts University for the last 35 years, is a true testament to his commitment to serving and empowering the next generation of leaders.
We are privileged that clear vision and strong leadership continue to emerge from our grantee organizations. It is institutions such as The Bronfman Fellowships and The Shalom Hartman Institute that help educate our professionals and enlighten their vision through intellectually-honest and stimulating Jewish learning. Please read on to learn more about some of the fresh ideas that have been generated.
We wish you all a stimulating and regenerative summer!
