Thirty students from University of Michigan celebrated their graduation
from the Jewish Resource Center's Maimonides fellowship program.

JN

n Saturday Dec. 3, some
30 University of Michigan
students, celebrating their
graduation from the Maimonides
fellowship program, joined 250 mem-
bers of the Oak Park Orthodox reli-
gious community at Temple Israel to
raise money for the Jewish Resource
Center (JRC), located on Hill Street in
Ann Arbor.
The JRC provides a home away
from home for Jewish students on
campus to become more knowledge-
able, confident and educated about
Jewish culture and identity.
Attendees enjoyed a strolling din-
ner with kosher sushi, chicken, tur-
key, hot pastrami and even braised
short ribs. Members of the com-
munity mingled with the Michigan
students, learning from one another.
Maimonides graduates from years
past were in attendance as well, and
had wise words to say to the new
alumni.
Once everyone had a chance to
shmooze, several speakers took the
floor to discuss the importance of the
Jewish Resource Center and how it
has inspired many students to con-
tinue to explore their Jewish roots.
JRC President Robert Newman
introduced Roy Neuberger, a
Michigan alum who struggled to find
his Judaism and had an extraordinary
story of how he found it, which he
chronicled in the book From Central
Park to Sinai, How I Found My Jewish
Soul.
A JRC video followed, showing how
JRC has changed the lives of Jewish
students at U-M. Finally, three stu-
dents, one past graduate and two new
alum of the Maimonides fellowship

Rabbi Fully Eisenberger addresses
the audience.

program, spoke briefly about their
experiences.
All the speakers shared a common
theme, or rather, a common person:
Rabbi Fully Eisenberger, who started
as director of the JRC five years ago
and has been doing a phenomenal job
since.
Standing on the Diag during
Michigan's annual Festifall this
September, Eisenberger was the
man with "the permanent grin:'
says Michelle Freed, one of the
Maimonides graduates. "Rabbi Fully's
personality and warm heart is a
magnet and constantly pulls Jewish
students toward the JRC and its won-
derful programs."
Eisenberger was the last to speak
on Saturday, telling yet another hilari-
ous story about the importance of
searching for one's Jewish identity.

the Jewish Resource Center at the
