After a storied 35-year tenure at Franklin & Marshall College, including a decade as adviser to Hillel, David Stameshkin will retire in the spring of 2012.
To celebrate his strong support of student life (and notably Jewish student life), the DAVID STAMESHKIN JEWISH STUDENT ENGAGEMENT FUND has been created to support leadership development for future generations of F&M Jewish students.
The Fund will help strengthen the programs and efforts of the Klehr Center for Jewish Life and F&M Hillel. The focus will be one-on-one student engagement through high-impact programs such as winter and spring break service trips, local social action initiatives and leadership development training. These opportunities will help students to form and inform their identities as independent Jewish adults who, like David, will make an enduring commitment to Jewish life and their world.
The goal is to raise $50,000 or more, so the fund can be endowed in perpetuity – as a lasting reminder David’s contributions to Jewish life at Franklin & Marshall.
To honor David with your contribution, simply indicate “David Stameshkin Jewish Student Engagement Fund” in the “Other Designations” box in the online giving form.
