Rabbi Aaron Panken, Ph.D., President, at left, with members of the HUC-JIR National Office of Recruitment and Admissions team and HUC-JIR Alumni Recruitment Recognition Award recipients.
Five HUC-JIR alumni were presented with the HUC-JIR Alumni Recruitment Recognition Award to celebrate and honor their contributions to the Jewish community and the Jewish people by mentoring and guiding future Jewish leaders. The awards were presented at the HUC-JIR alumni reception at the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) Biennial on December 8, 2017. The candidates for the awards were gleaned from data of nominations, applications, and surveys, as well as work on special projects that benefit recruitment.
Thank you to these alumni and to all of our alumni for mentoring and recommending candidates for the graduate programs of HUC-JIR. Please take advantage of our Alumni Recruitment Toolkit to interest tomorrow's Jewish leaders in today's opportunities.
Rabbi Rachel Sabath Beit-Halachmi, Ph.D., National Director of Recruitment and Admissions and President's Scholar, and the Recruitment and Admissions team, together with the President’s Office, present Alumni Recruitment Recognition Awards two to three times per year. If you would like to nominate an alumnnus, please send their name, contact information, and a three-five sentence recommendation to Rabbi Sabath at firstname.lastname@example.org.
