The President’s Council

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


For a contribution of $10,000 to $24,999, become one of our President’s Council Shutafim, Partners. In addition to all of the benefits of Shabbat Table Haverim, the President will choose a recently published book by a member of the Hebrew College faculty for you, personally signed by the author.
