Myles Gilbert, Matias Lancewicki, Lauren Rub, Ilana Stiberman and Abraham Woldenberg of Scheck Hillel Community School received scholarships from the Jaime and Raquel Gilinski Hillel Ambassador Program for their academic achievements and service to their school.
Students are each required to write an essay, produce a video and create a résumé to apply. Finalists are then selected for a panel interview and then winners are announced. The five winners were recognized during a ceremony with family, friends, students and alumni last month.
“The Gilinski Hillel Ambassador Program recognizes excellence and leadership, and these students are the best representation of it,” said Ezra Levy, head of school. “We are grateful for Jaime and Raquel Gilinski’s stewardship of this ambassador program and for their commitment to Jewish education.”
