From the desk of Rabbi David Ellenson
Dear friends of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion:

The transmission of Torah continues today, as we celebrate the holiday of Shavuot and Israel's 60th anniversary, and bring forth another generation of Jewish leaders at the convocations of our 133rd academic year. Inspired by Torah's ethical values – gemilut chasadim, acts of loving kindness, and the pursuit of tzedek, justice – our students and alumni are committed to activism to build a fair and just society and bring tikkun olam, the repairing of our world.

With heartfelt wishes for a joyful Shavuot, blessed with fulfillment and peace,

Rabbi David Ellenson

Chair, Board of Governors
