The President’s Council

Please join us in our 2018 – 2019 academic year as we continue to build a vibrant, pluralistic Jewish community through our enduring core values: love of Torah, communal responsibility, and Jewish creativity.

Your participation in the President’s Council will provide essential resources for Hebrew College. As a Council member, you will have the opportunity to meet with President Anisfeld and to serve the College in an advisory capacity, whether as a member of a committee of the Board of Trustees, or in another role.

We invite you to join Hebrew College’s 2018-2019 President’s Council with a gift at one of the following levels:


Shutafim/Partners: $10,000 to $24,999

In addition to all of the benefits of Shabbat Table Haverim/Friends, the President will choose a recently published book by a member of the Hebrew College faculty for you, personally signed by the author.

Talmidim/Lifelong Learners: $25,000 to $49,999

In addition to all of the benefits above, you may enroll as our guest in a Hebrew College community course — in person or online.

Bonim/Builders: $50,000 to $99,999

In addition to all of the benefits above, you will be invited each semester to the President’s Council breakfast and study session with a senior member of the Hebrew College faculty.

Meyasdim/Founders: $100,000+

In addition to all of the benefits above, you will be invited to meet privately with the President to share some of her favorite chocolates, and toast l’chaim! to the future of Hebrew College.

Please email advancement@hebrewcollege.edu if you would like to assist President Anisfeld in an advisory role as a member of the 2018-2019 President’s Council. We welcome your counsel in a way that fits with your personal interests and the needs of the College. We will then be in touch to discuss this in further detail with you.
