The Non-Gala Gala 2019

This campaign ends on May 14 at 08:00PM EDT

Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion is the center of innovation for Jewish life and learning – preparing Jewish nonprofit professionals, rabbis, cantors, leaders in Jewish education, pastoral counselors, and scholars to apply their knowledge, commitment, vision, and expertise to strengthen and transform the Jewish community and larger world.

This "Non-Gala Gala" is an opportunity that guarantees you a night of NOT having to attend an event, as well as the satisfaction of knowing that your 100% tax deductible charitable contributions are helping to ensure the vitality of HUC-JIR.

Your generous gift will be directed to our Annual Fund, helping to forge a new generation of inspired Jewish leaders who will guide our communities and sustain a vibrant and relevant Jewish future.

Each dollar you contribute is used immediately to cover the direct costs of educating students: meeting student needs, promoting learning, advancing professional development, and supporting innovative programs. That is why your help is so important.
