“Leaders of Distinction” Awards presented to area supporters of The Hebrew University

PALM BEACH, FL – Over 200 supporters of American Friends of The Hebrew University packed the ballroom at the Four Seasons Hotel in Palm Beach on March 15th to hear Bret Stephens, Deputy Editor and foreign affairs columnist of the Wall Street Journal address the organization and to honor local community leaders
who received special recognition at the 2012
Scholarship Luncheon.

Helen Eisenberg, Adrienne and Alan Fiske and Dini Katz were honored at the event and received the prestigious American Friends of The Hebrew University Leaders of Distinction Award.

Dr. Adam Zaidel, Ph.D. in Neuroscience from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem was the event’s special guest at the luncheon, as well as at a private cocktail reception the evening prior at the Palm Beach home of Dr. Maria Spinak.

Luncheon Chairs were Ellen Klersfeld, Sheldon Hechtman and
Dr. Maria Spinak with Diane Belfer, Rita and Ernest Bogen, Roberta and Stanley Bogen, Sherry and Kenneth Endelson, Ari Rifkin, Rita and
Harold Wolfson and Donald Vinik serving on the luncheon committee to name a few.

At the awards luncheon, Mr. Stephens provided a journalist’s perspective on the growing Iranian threat toward Israel and the world. Twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, Stephens is a regular panelist on The Journal Editorial Report, carried weekly by the Fox News Channel.

Proceeds from the luncheon will benefit students on scholarship at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, which ranks 57th worldwide. Founded in 1918 by Albert Einstein, Chaim Weizmann, Sigmund Freud and others, the university counts Nobel laureates as well as Israel’s prime ministers, Knesset members and Supreme Court justices among its distinguished alumni.

By providing scholarships for Hebrew University students, American Friends of The Hebrew University assure that Israel remains a beacon unto the nations at present and in the decades to come. A full two-thirds of the students work part-time and struggle to fund their educational expenses. Many have fulfilled military service and have young families to support. “Our contributions in support of scholarships enable them to achieve their professional goals and dreams,” noted Sheldon Hechtman, President of the Southeast Region Board of American Friends of The Hebrew University.

More information on the organization is available by calling Monica Loebl, Executive Director, at 561.750.8585 or at .
