BOSTON – Rabbi Harold Kushner will be the guest speaker at University of Massachusetts Amherst Hillel’s spring fundraiser honoring Rabbi Saul Perlmutter on Tuesday, March 29 at the University of Massachusetts Club Boston.
The event is being held to support Jewish student life at UMass Amherst and includes a dinner reception and program.
Rabbi Harold Kushner was named Rabbi Laureate of Temple Israel in Natick after serving that congregation for 24 years. He is best known as the author of “When Bad Things Happen to Good People,” an international bestseller first published in 1981.
Rabbi Saul Perlmutter has been the executive director of UMass Hillel since 1974. During his tenure at UMass Hillel, the organization has grown from one tiny office in the Student Union to an entire building that serves as home to many Jewish students at the university and as a cultural and religious center for Jewish student life on campus. Rabbi Perlmutter has mentored scores of Jewish undergraduates at UMass Amherst and his innovative programming attracts hundreds of students to Hillel every week. Under his guidance, countless graduates have become leaders in Jewish communities across the country.
Tickets are $180.00 per person or $300.00 per couple.
