University Hillel Director Michael
Brooks will receive the Covenant
Foundation's Award for outstanding
Jewish educators in North America.
The Covenant Foundation - found-
ed in 1990 by the Crown Family
Foundation and co-sponsored by the
Jewish Education Service of North
America - has given the annual
awards since its inception, said
Deborah Sadok, assistant to the execu-
tive director of the Covenant
Foundation.
Every year, more than 400 educators
are nominated. The prestigious award
includes a $20,000 cash prize.
Two other educators besides Brooks
will be honored this year.
One of the Foundation's goals is to
further the education of the heritage
and identity of Jewish people, which is
also one of the criteria for Covenant
Award candidates.
The Foundation aspires to further
Jewish education by distributing awards
to outstanding educators and providing
grants for innovative programs.
Brooks is "an exceptional Jewish
educator who has had a significant
impact on others in recognition of
his outstanding contributions to the
transmission of Jewish knowledge,
values and identity," said Sadok.
Tile winners are nominated by col-
leagues, leaders and community mem-
bers.

Brooks has been associated with the
University Hillel since 1980 and is cur-
rently the executive director of the
Mandell L. Berman Center.
"I was quite astonished to get the
call," Brooks said.
"It's quite an honor. It's a very presti-
gious award which puts me in very
good company."
The award will bring attention to
both Brooks and the University Hillel -
It reinforces his values, teachings an*
agenda for education and program-
ming at Hillel. Members consider the
University Hillel a model organization
- and its status is about to rise.
"I think it will give Hillel a little
more national recognition," Brooks
said. "I suspect it will complicate my
life a little bit in that I will probably get
even more speaking invitations than I
get now."
Hillel is open to all students. Its pr
gramming includes campus events an
projects like the annual Golden Apple
Award - a students' choice award for
outstanding academic instruction -
and Greek Week. It also serves as a
community center for education and
worship, offering religious support and
services to students.
"It serves two functions. Part of it is
here to serve the needs of the Jewish
community on campus," Brooks saidO
Brooks will receive his award at a
ceremony in New York City on Sept.
9.
