Former Phi Sigma Delta Fraternity executive director Lee I. Dogoloff received the Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity’s Man of Distinction Award at 2014 International Convention and Leadership School in Washington, D.C. Dogoloff joined the Epsilon Chapter of Phi Alpha Fraternity at the University of Maryland, College Park as a freshman in the fall of 1957. Two years later, Phi Alpha merged with Phi Sigma Delta Fraternity. Dogoloff held chapter leadership positions including vice president as an undergraduate.

Upon graduation in 1963, he became alumni adviser for his chapter and later was asked to join the National Executive Council of Phi Sigma Delta. He became executive director of Phi Sigma Delta in 1967 and served in that position through the 1969 merger with ZBT, a process with which he was deeply involved.

In the decades since, Dogoloff has become an expert in drug abuse issues and policy setting at the local, state and federal levels of government. He currently maintains a clinical practice specializing in the treatment of drug, alcohol and general mental health problems and holds an advanced clinical practice license in both Maryland and Delaware.

Rabbi Moskowitz Joins N.Y. Temple

2014-08-07 10:00:47 lbridwell

Baltimore-native Rabbi Susie Heneson Moskowitz has been named senior rabbi of Temple Beth Torah in Melville, Long Island, succeeding Rabbi Marc Gellman, who was the congregation’s senior rabbi for the past 33 years. Rabbi Moskowitz is the third senior rabbi of the 550-family Reform Congregation since it was founded in 1969. For the past 18 years Rabbi Moskowitz has been a part of Temple Beth Torah’s clergy team, serving first as rabbi educator and then as associate rabbi.

“Rabbi Moskowitz has made so many contributions to Temple Beth Torah over the years, from growing our religious school to starting Mishpacha University, a learning experience for families. She has increased membership through her creative programming and social and community service events. Her compassion, innovation, leadership and creativity made her the perfect choice for our new senior rabbi,” said Sandy Berland, Temple Beth Torah president.

Prior to coming to Temple Beth Torah, Moskowitz was family educator at the Reconstructionist Synagogue of the North Shore, where she implemented one of the first UJA-Federation Continuity grants. She also served as assistant rabbi at Temple Beth El of Great Neck following her ordination from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati in 1991.

JWI Awarded Jewish Social Change Grant

2014-08-07 10:00:39 lbridwell

Jewish Women International, the world’s leading progressive Jewish women’s organization, is set to bring its award-winning Safe Smart Dating program to additional college campuses, thanks to a $50,000 grant from the Jewish Social Change Matching Fund. Safe Smart Dating, an innovative workshop created in partnership with Sigma Delta Tau and Zeta Beta Tau, helps college students define, identify and prevent dating abuse and sexual violence on campus.

Understanding that Jewish organizations have played a role in some of the most significant social change, seven foundations, the Jacob and Hilda Blaustein Foundation, the Morton K. and Jane Blaustein Foundation, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, the Naomi & Nehemiah Cohen Foundation, the Dorot Foundation, the Walter & Elise Haas Fund and the Righteous Persons Foundation, in partnership with the Jewish Funders Network, created this matching fund to encourage and support work that addresses the root problem of injustice and help move toward change using a uniquely Jewish perspective.

Safe Smart Dating is the first national program on dating abuse and sexual assault for the Greek community on college campuses. It was piloted last year with SDT and ZBT chapters at the University of Pennsylvania, George Washington University and Purdue University.
