Announcing: UM Hillel Wins Outstanding Campus Award!

We are thrilled to announce that last week at the Hillel International Global Assembly, University of Miami Hillel was awarded the prestigious 2018 Philip H. and Susan Rudd Cohen Outstanding Campus Award.

This top campus award honors a Hillel that demonstrates excellence in strategically engaging students on the periphery of Jewish Life.

Among the many accomplishments in the past few years, the highlights of UM Hillel’s work include:
• Retaining an outstanding team of professionals, who work in partnership with an exemplary cohort of lay leaders, UM Hillel’s Board of Directors.
• UM Hillel became the largest provider for Birthright Israel and Onward Israel in Miami Dade, sending over 120 students annually.
• UM Hillel sent the largest AIPAC student delegation in 2018, and continues to recruit to send even more students in 2019.
• In less than a year we are on track to triple the number of students to 60 per year who attend the Jewish Learning Fellowship, 10-week learning seminars taught by Hillel staff.
• UM Hillel’s intentional efforts to work with Jewish Latino students as part of our national partnership with The David Project and American Jewish Committee, which resulted in hosting Jewish Latino Summit and three Alternative Spring Breaks to Cuba, Brazil, and Argentina.
• UM Hillel introduced kosher meals as part of the University of Miami meal plan in 2018 by opening the highly sought after restaurant, Pura Vida, at the Braman Miller Center for Jewish Student Life.
• Interfaith work on campus culminating in the first ever interfaith conference held on a college campus, which took place at UM Hillel in October.
• Base Miami became an integral part of the Jewish landscape of millennial engagement in the Brickell area. UM Hillel’s initiative to offer pluralistic Jewish life to the 20 and 30-year-old’s residing in Miami.
• UM Hillel successfully passed an independent financial audit in 2016, and 2018.
• We were selected to be part of the second cohort of the Organizational Design Lab; a creative think-tank to help us explore new and dynamic ways to reach even more Jewish students on the periphery.
• Read more about our work in our 2018 Impact Report.
In the months (and years) to come, we are certain that prestigious 2018 Philip H. and Susan Rudd Cohen Outstanding Campus Award will help elevate our work on campus as we strive to reach new heights.

We are very humbled by the support we have received from our community: alumni, parents and local community leaders. We deeply appreciate your guidance and commitment!

Your generosity inspires us to work very hard to ensure you see return on your investment, and UM Hillel achieves its mission of inspiring every Jewish student to make an enduring commitment to Jewish Life, Learning and Israel.

From strength to strength and Mazal Tov to all Jewish ‘Canes!

Outstanding Scheck Hillel Students Receive Merit Scholarships, Named Jaime and Raquel Gilinski Hillel Ambassadors

Gilinski Ambassadors 2018

North Miami Beach, Fla. – Five outstanding Scheck Hillel Community School students received merit-based scholarships as the 10th generation of the school’s Jaime and Raquel Gilinski Hillel Ambassadors.

Gabriela Bentolila (Grade 12), Gabrielle Kurzer (Grade 11), Michael Rafalskyy (Grade 10), Joshua Schmutter (Grade 11) and Albert Wolak (Grade 12) were honored at the 2018-19 Jaime and Raquel Gilinski Hillel Ambassador Program recognition ceremony and student assembly on November 15. They celebrated with their families and peers, as well as alumni who were named Ambassadors in previous years. The morning was a beautiful representation of 10 generations within this prestigious program.

“Congratulations to all of our Ambassadors and to their families” said Vanessa Donaher, Head of Scheck Hillel Community School. “Today these students join generations of Ambassadors making an impact around the world: attending graduate school in far corners of the United States, volunteering with rural communities in Africa, serving in the Israeli Defense Forces, nurturing our local South Florida community, and pursuing their dreams as young entrepreneurs, engineers and educators. They carry the lifelong title of Gilinski Hillel Ambassador, representing the prestigious Program and Scheck Hillel as Jewish leaders and global citizens.”

The rigorous annual application requires students to write short essays, produce a video and formulate a resume; finalists advance to a panel interview.

The Program, created by Jaime and Raquel Gilinski, recognizes students who demonstrate exceptional commitment to education and Scheck Hillel, encouraging the lifelong learning and leadership that continuity requires. Ambassadors showcase the Scheck Hillel mission through accomplishment and talent - in the classroom, on the field, on stage or through community service.

Over the years, Gilinski Hillel Ambassadors have graduated to Ivy League and top tier schools such as the University of Pennsylvania, Cornell University, University of Miami, University of Florida, Columbia University, Vanderbilt University, University of Michigan, among others. The 2019-2020 application will open in spring 2019. For information, please contact Scheck Hillel’s Admissions office at 305.931.2831x173 or write to admissions@eHillel.org.
