Hebrew Union College Gets $5 Million Donation

Hebrew Union College’s School of Jewish Nonprofit Management will be renamed in honor of Marcie and Howard Zelikow after the couple provided a multi-million dollar donation.

The Zelikows provided a $5 million endowment along with a $1 million commitment for current operations to the Los Angeles school, HUC announced Sunday. The official dedication of the school will take place Feb. 8.

“Our investment in the Zelikow School is an investment in the Jewish future,” Marcie Zelikow, the immediate past chair of the school’s Advisory Board and a member of the college’s board of governors, said in a statement. “We are proud to support its ever growing impact on Jewish life in the Reform Movement and across the Jewish landscape, today and for the generations to come.”

The Zelikow School sponsors supervised internships at Jewish institutions in southern California, a dual-degree relationship with graduate programs at the University of Southern California, a lay-mentorship program, and a biennial Israel seminar.
