Save the Date: Hall of Fame March 3, 2019

Oct 26, 2018

Santa Barbara Hillel is pleased to honor Bobbi Kroot, Stephanie & Jim Sokolove, and Elizabeth & David Gaynes at our 16th Annual Santa Barbara Hillel Hall of Fame celebration. Bobbi, Stephanie, and Jim will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Elizabeth & David will receive our Alumni Achievement Award. Each of them has helped Santa Barbara Hillel become a hub of Jewish life and a home away from home for our students.

The festive brunch will be held on the morning of Sunday, March 3, 2019.

A commemorative tribute book is being prepared in celebration of our honorees. More information will be available shortly.
