WashU Hillel honored 14 graduating student leaders at its 2020 Senior Recognition Ceremony on Sunday, May 31 via Zoom. Over 100 family members and guests from around the country tuned in to hear congratulatory remarks from Washington University Chancellor Andrew Martin, the Hillel staff, and Hillel Board Chair Penny Alper. Each student was recognized individually and received a custom glass mezuzah designed and created by hand with the WashU emblem by local artist David Alper. The event was underwritten by the Fred J. Rosenbaum Memorial Fund.
