Richard Solloway Student Fund
Each year, UF Hillel employs students in a number of roles including hospitality, administrative, development, programmatic, and engagement interns. Student employment at UF Hillel is made possible through the generosity of the Richard Solloway Student Fund. Students interested in learning more about employment opportunities are encouraged to contact Rabbi Jonah Zinn.
History of the Richard Solloway Student Fund
In keeping with Maimonides’ teaching that the highest form of tzedakah is to provide a person in need with employment (Mishneh Torah, Laws of Gifts to the Poor 10:7), the Richard Solloway Student Fund was created to assist current college students who need financial help by providing them with employment opportunities at University of Florida Hillel.
Established in 2020, the Fund was born out of the personal experience and generosity of Richard Solloway BSBA '65. As a UF student, Richard needed assistance with expenses, and his Pi Lambda Phi fraternity brothers afforded him the opportunity to work as a waiter in the fraternity house. This experience inspired Richard to create this fund to help students and support UF Hillel’s work.
If you are interested in contributing to this fund or perhaps inspired to support another area of our work that is personally meaningful to you, please contact UF Hillel Director of Development, Jamie Zinn at (352) 248-2601.
