Board of Directors
"Being a part of the Suncoast Hillels' Board excites me because it provides an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of Jewish students who will one day be our future leaders assuring continuity and continuance of the Jewish existence."
"I am a strong supporter of Hillel and proudly serve on the board because I feel every Jewish student should have a "home" on his/her campus to enjoy, practice and explore his/her Jewish identity with other Jewish students ."
"I am excited to serve on the Hillels of the Florida Suncoast board of directors because I have a passion for helping to build and sustain a welcoming environment for Jewish students on our college campuses. I feel it is so important to nurture young Jewish minds by providing them with a nexus for social, political and cultural activities while they prepare for the rest of their lives."

"Suncoast Hillels have the opportunity to engage young adults at a critical time, when they are deciding who they are and what they believe. Our mission works to ensure a Jewish future for our People and for our students. What we do is vital, and it is my honor to support and serve this highly meaningful organization."
"In today's stressful environment, Hillel provides a safe haven for Jewish students to meet and bond with each other. I also appreciate and want to foster the sharing of Jewish cultural experiences. By being on the Board I'm in a position to help enrich the lives of future generations of the Jewish Community."
"College is the last real opportunity to reach and engage our young people. Hillel provides them with the experiences of Jewish life, learning and spirituality, to enhance their personal growth and confidence. It is quiet a challenge, but these young people are our future—the future of the Jewish people and community in this country, and I believe it is our responsibility to meet this challenge."
"The future of the Jewish people is predicated upon the engagement of our youth. Hillel provides a nurturing educational environment for the students on our Tampa Bay campuses. These endeavors warrant our support."
"There is a great deal of anti-Jewish noise in the world today, especially on college campuses. I'm on the Board of the Suncoast Hillels because I believe it is important that there be a strong Jewish presence to give students the strength to stand up to dangerous ideas that threaten our Jewish way of life and give them the tools to enlighten their classmates to the truths that others try to obscure."
"Supporting Hillel is important to me because I want to do everything I can to ensure the continuity and cultural vitality of Jews in America which directly impacts the vitality of Jews around the world."
"Helping students become engaged members of the community is part of our responsibility. Hillel embodies this philosophy by connecting students to all aspects of our incredible community both culturally and professionally. I’m proud to support this important aspect of student and community life."
