Bruce R. Levin is a member of the F&M class of 1988. He and his wife, Dorie, live in Edison, N.J., and belong to Neve Shalom Congregation in Metuchen, N.J. Bruce serves as the treasurer of the Neve Shalom Men's Club. He earned his MBA from Rutgers University and has spent most of his professional career as an information technology project manager in the pharmaceutical industry.
After his days serving on the student board at F&M Hillel, including a term as student president (1987-88), Bruce continued to be involved with the organization as an alumnus. He has had a hand in many major projects at Hillel, including significant upgrades to the original Hillel House; the acquisition of the Sefer Torah and the establishment of a sacred worship space; the installation (in the Hillel House) of original works of art by the renowned sculptor, Chaim Gross; and, together with his wife, Dorie, the dedication of the Levin Kosher Kitchen in the original Hillel House.
In 2008, longtime Hillel adviser and now Klehr Center Director Ralph Taber invited Bruce to join the board of directors of the Klehr Center for Jewish Life. Most recently, Bruce worked with fellow board members to celebrate 2016's 50th Anniversary of Hillel at Franklin & Marshall College. He is proud and humbled to be invited to lead the board of directors of the Klehr Center over the next several years as chairperson of the board.
Bruce's goals are to continue to build and sustain an active and involved Klehr Center board of alumni and parents who are committed to the long-term enhancement of the Jewish community at Franklin & Marshall and the health and well-being of the Klehr Center. He hopes to foster close connections with the current student leadership of Hillel and create lifelong relationships among members of the community. Bruce also wants to look toward the future and ensure strong professional leadership and its ongoing development at the Klehr Center, while maintaining positive and productive ties between Hillel and other affinity groups on campus.
When he is not spending time volunteering in the community, Bruce enjoys theater, traveling, stamp collecting and spending time in New York City.
