Jewish Studies Program Advisory Board

The Jewish Studies Advisory Board met for the first time in two years on June 6, 2021 in a well-attended Zoom conference. At that meeting we welcomed new members Robert Gerber, Andrew Goodman, Jody and Sheldon Hirst, Lindsey Mintz, and Jean Robinson, provided updates on the Jewish Studies Program, and approved a revised version of the Board's By-Laws. We are especially excited to announce the creation of the new Development Leader position, which will focus on helping us define and achieve our fundraising goals. For 2021-22 our Board elected Andrew Mallor, Executive President; Drew Soshnick, Vice President; and Robert Borns, Development Leader.
