Recent Rutgers University graduate Mollie Kahn of Kinnelon is among four students who will be cited as “Student Rising Stars” at Rutgers University Hillel’s annual gala on Monday, June 22.
She was a member of Hillel and of Kol Halayla, Rutgers’ premiere Jewish a cappella group, where she was a board member and assistant music director. She went on the Hillel and American Jewish World Service’s spring break service trip to Nicaragua, where she helped build a library for adult literacy and also participated in Birthright. She was a Peer Network Engagement Intern for Rutgers Hillel, and as a senior she established Hillel Senior Series events for graduating Jewish seniors with contributions from young alumni of Rutgers Hillel.
Joseph Hollander of Holmdel and Mitch Frumkin of Kendall Park, architects of the recently created Jewish Federation in the Heart of New Jersey, which combined the federations of Monmouth and Middlesex counties, will receive Visionaries in Partnership awards; Beth and Marty Aron of Springfield will be given the Rabbi Julius Funk Alumni award, and Sara Sideman of Cherry Hill will receive the Young Alumni award. More than 300 people are expected to attend the event at the Crystal Plaza in Livingston.
