Did you know... In 1997, HUC-JIR and the Women’s Rabbinic Network (WRN) partnered to raise a minimum of $500,000 to create and endow the Rabbi Sally J. Priesand Visiting Professorship of Jewish Women’s Studies to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ordination of Rabbi Sally J. Priesand, the first woman rabbi in America.
Since the fall of 1999, the College-Institute has invited almost two dozen notable woman academicians, as well as cultural and social trailblazers, to be Rabbi Priesand Visiting Professors of Jewish Women’s Studies. Jewish Women’s Studies visiting faculty spend a semester or a year teaching at one of the College-Institute’s four campuses. In this setting, visiting faculty have taught, shaped, and impacted generations of HUC-JIR students.
If you were positively influenced by a teacher, or perhaps by a Rabbi Priesand Visiting Professor, while a student at HUC-JIR, consider a deferred gift in your estate plan directed to the Rabbi Priesand Visiting Professorship Fund, to an existing Faculty Chair Fund, or to the newly established Rabbi Aaron D. Panken Professorships. A gift from your Will, Trust, or Retirement Account can help assure that those who come after you will have the same opportunity to benefit from a long tradition of learning from the College-Institute’s renowned faculty.
For a complete list of Rabbi Priesand Visiting Professors or for information on how to assure the education of innovative and visionary clergy and professionals for future generations, contact Susan G. Kulick, J.D., L.L. M., National Director of Gift Planning, HUC-JIR at 513-487-3227, 800-488-8720, ext.3227, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
