Hillel Building Enthusiasm
More than 100 students, faculty, alumni, and Jewish community leaders welcomed a $1 million gift from the family of the late Rhode Island business leader and philanthropist Norman N. Fain ’36, Hon. ’67. The gift will help build a permanent Hillel center on the Kingston Campus that will serve as a meeting place where students can celebrate Jewish life, explore Jewish and universal issues, build life-long friendships, and enrich their personal growth. Jonathan Fain, son of Norman and Rosalie Fain, is shown talking about his father’s legacy of support for the University and the Jewish community.
