Jewish Educator of the Year Award Announced
Congregation Beth Tikvah’s Religious and Hebrew School teacher Dan Betzel will receive the Jeffrey & Lori Lasday Jewish Educator of the Year award. A professional financial planner and tax attorney, Betzel received Foundation and Federation support a number of years ago to procure a Masters in Judaic Studies degree, becoming one of the two local Jewish educators designated as a Columbus Professional Fellow in Jewish Education. The Lasday Award is funded by the Lasday Endowment, which is housed here at the Foundation. It will be presented later this month on Jewish Community Educators’ Day.
