Brandeis Scores $5M Gift From Mandel Foundation

The Cleveland-based Mandel Foundation awarded $5.25 million to Brandeis University to endow a professorship in Jewish education research.

The suburban Boston university on Monday announced the gift by the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation to fund the faculty chair and strengthen the programming at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education.

The announcement came during a ceremony to dedicate the auditorium at the Mandel Center for the Humanities in honor of Barbara Mandel, Morton’s wife and a Brandeis trustee since 2005.

The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Professorship in Jewish Education Research joins two similarly named chairs in Jewish education and Jewish educational thought at the Center for Studies in Jewish Education.
