Black Tie International:
American Friends of Hebrew University Gala





Kathi Cypress, Kenneth Endelson and Sherry Endelson

Kathi Cypress, Kenneth and Sherry Endelson


PALM BEACH – American Friends of The Hebrew University bestowed its highest national honors on Diane Belfer and her children, Kenneth and Sherry Endelson of Boca Raton, for their support of Hebrew University in Jerusalem, when the organization held its gala at The Breakers Hotel. 

          Daniel C. Kurtzer, former United States Ambassador to Israel who is currently a lecturer and the S. Daniel Abraham Professor in Middle Eastern Policy Studies at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, was the guest speaker.
           The National Scopus Award is the American Friends’ highest recognition for humanitarian achievement and it is awarded to individuals who are committed to The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and are involved with many humanitarian causes on local, national and international levels.  Named for Mount Scopus, where The Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s first cornerstones were laid in 1918, the award has come to symbolize the University’s highest ideals. 
           The 2011 Scopus Award Gala, chaired by Barbara and Richard Rothschild, Roberta and Stanley Bogen and Ellen and Irwin Levy, began with a reception and was followed by the awards ceremony, dinner and dancing in the historic hotel’s Circle Room.  Kathi Cypres received the honors for her mother, alongside her brother and sister-in-law at the prestigious awards ceremony.
Gala co-chairs included Linda and Peter Berley, Barbara and Jack Kay, Susan and Darrell Ross, Judy and Robert Snyder, Louise and Michael Stein, Robbie and Bruce Toll, Lois and Martin Zelman and Jane and Ronald Zimmerman.
According to Mr. Bogen, who presented the award, Mrs. Belfer and Mr. and Mrs. Endelson have a bond with the worldwide Jewish community, and their Jewish identity and love for Israel has long been a defining force in their lives.
          “American Friends of The Hebrew University was proud to bestow its prestigious Scopus Award upon Diane Belfer and her son and daughter-in-law, Kenneth and Sherry Endelson, whose commitment to making a difference is visible in every facet of their lives.   As they continue their commitment to The Hebrew University, the University of the Jewish People, they are ensuring the perpetuation of our unique history, culture and intellectual traditions. Through their generosity and support, Diane Belfer and her children will ensure that Israel’s finest students reach their academic potential and dreams.”
          The Hebrew University of Jerusalem has earned a stellar reputation as Israel’s foremost center of higher education and interdisciplinary research. It has been repeatedly ranked in the top 100 worldwide, and generates one-third of all civilian research in Israel. 
           Guests attending the 2011 Scopus Awards included:  Andrea Stark, Laurie Silvers and Mitchell Rubenstein, Marjorie and Robert Emden, Louise and Michael Stein, Barbara Mandel, Michelle and Joseph Jacobs, Judy and Robert Snyder and Jane and Ronald Zimmerman.
          The Hebrew University faculty includes recent Nobel and Israel Prize winners, as well as top grant recipients. The University continues to attract the best and the brightest students from Israel and more than 50 countries, engaging them in a community of open dialogue. Distinguished alumni include present and former Israeli Prime Ministers, the first female Supreme Court President, 25% of Knesset members and 12 of the 15 Supreme Court justices.

          Forging a meaningful partnership between American Jewry and the people of Israel,  American Friends of The Hebrew University helps to ensure the nation’s well being by nurturing Israel’s greatest asset:  The intellectual strength of its people.  More information on American Friends of  The Hebrew University and the Scopus Gala may be obtained by calling Monica Loebl, Southeast Region Executive Director at 561.750.8585.
