2012 Scopus Awards Gala


PALM BEACH – American Friends of The Hebrew University bestowed its highest national honor on Roberta and Stanley Bogen for their support of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, when the organization held its gala on January 28th at The Breakers Hotel. Over $1.5 million was raised at the event, which was designated to advance pioneering work at the Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment at The Hebrew University. The event also featured a special performance by musical icon and Grammy award winner, Ms. Dionne Warwick.

The Scopus Award was presented by Hebrew University President, Professor Menahem Ben-Sasson, and American Friends of The Hebrew University National President, Martin E. Karlinsky.

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 2012 Scopus Award Gala, chaired by Lori and Bruce Gendelman, Barbara and Richard Rothschild, Judy and Robert Snyder, and Nancy and Kenneth Stein, began with a reception and was followed by the awards ceremony, dinner, dancing and a performance by
Ms. Warwick.

According to Professor Ben-Sasson, who presented the award,
Mr. and Mrs. Bogen 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 the Bogens, 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, Mr. and Mrs. Bogen 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.

Founders Circle supporters for the Scopus event included: Diane Belfer, Judith Ripka Berk and Ronald J. Berk, Rita and Ernest Bogen, Sherry and Kenneth Endelson, Patricia and Mark Gordon, Susan and Roger Hertog, Michelle and Joseph Jacobs, Joan and Myron Kaufman, Barbara and Jack Kay, Barbara and Morton Mandel, Tina and
Marvin Simner, May Flach and Richard Ziman, Jane and
Ronald Zimmerman.

Scopus supporters included: Lorraine and Richard Abramson, Meg and Jay Axelrod, Sherry Norris and John Bauman, Luba and Isaac Becker, Christine Ruppert and Martin Karlinsky, Carol and Michael Kurtz, Bernice Lieberman, Mitra and Michael Margolis, Elaine and William Miller, Susan and Darrell Ross, Laurie Silvers and Mitchell Rubenstein, Ali and Lewis Sanders, Ellen and George Schieren, Ellen and Ira Lee Sorkin, Louise and Michael Stein, Norma and William Tiefel, Robbi and Bruce Toll, Lois and Martin Zelman.

Also in attendance at the 2012 Scopus Award Gala were: Linda and Peter Berley, Mickey and Lawrence Beyer, Marjorie and Robert Emden, Roberta and Paul Kozloff, Bonnie and Senator Frank Lautenberg, Ellen and H. Irwin Levy, Sondra and David Mack, Phyllis and William Mack, Alexandra and Scott Prosser, Fiona and Michael Scharf, Amy and Robert Schlager, Heidi and Scott Schuster, Gilda and Alfred Slifka, among others.

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 former Israeli Prime Ministers, the first female Supreme Court President, 24% of Knesset members and half of the Supreme Court justices in Israel.

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 may be obtained by calling Monica Loebl, Southeast Region Executive Director at 561.750.8585.
