A Special Message from Our Co-Chairs

Donya Khalili Timofeyev

Hilary Caplan Somorjai

Join us as a sponsor for the Bronfman Fellowship Gala on Thursday, May 11, 2023, at 6:30 pm at Tribeca 360 in NYC. This memorable evening will begin with a cocktail celebration including a silent auction of experiences offered by Bronfman alumni, including authors Jonathan Safran Foer and Dara Horn, opera singer Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen, and others. We are also thrilled to honor our beloved Bronfman educator, Rabbi Sharon Cohen Anisfeld, President of Hebrew College, a Jewish pluralism trailblazer who has served as a teacher and role model to members of the Bronfman community over 15 different Fellowship years.

Since 1987, The Bronfman Fellowship has envisioned a future led by people who see the world through a lens broader than their own and who value Jewish learning as an instrument for discovery, creativity, and change. We are grateful that The Bronfman Fellowship community continues to be a source of meaningful connection and purpose for so many. Pluralism, introspection, and deep Jewish learning remain the bedrocks of our model, and as we face the challenges of today’s world, they are more important than ever.

We believe that the Fellowship is something to be nurtured – and we need your support.

As The Bronfman Fellowship marks its 36th anniversary, we celebrate and reflect on our core mission of building a passionate community of deeply engaged Jewish leaders. The Bronfman Fellowship is poised for profound growth and ready to reimagine the next 36 years. We have launched a bold new strategic plan, which we will be sharing with the community in the coming months. To ensure that The Bronfman Fellowship continues to lead the way in transformative Jewish education, with an outsized impact on Jewish life and the world, we need you by our side as a gala sponsor. The gala is a critical step toward meeting these goals and, as a sponsor, you will inspire our community. Please join us as a sponsor and plan to attend so we can celebrate 36 years together.

We look forward to seeing you on May 11th!
