RD1 0265On Tuesday, December 9, 2014, Hebrew Theological College held its 92nd Annual Banquet at the Westin O’Hare. This year, HTC payed tribute to Beryl and Florence Miller, Guests of Honor, Jordan and Sue Klein, Parents of the Year, and Pnina Levinson and Zehava Krauss for their decade of leadership as coordinators for HTC's Rabbi William Z. and Eda Bess Novick z"l Bigdei Yisrael clothing drive project. Each of the honorees are true examples of this year’s dinner theme, Toras Chaim V’Ahavas Chesed, Living Torah and Love of Kindness.


RD1 0441

The Banquet, attended by over 400 supporters, parents and faculty, featured inspirational and informative addresses by Rabbi Avraham Friedman, Rosh HaYehsiva and Rabbi Shmuel Schuman, Interim CEO.

Rabbi Schuman included an update regarding the upcoming relationship with Touro College, and beautifully expressed HTC and Touro's joint commitment that this alliance will serve to expand HTC's horizons while retaining a unique identity to serve our students and our community.

The goal of the partnership is to create opportunities to leverage Touro's resources to benefit HTC students in the Beis Midrash and college for men and Blitstein Institute for women. Those opportunities will include pathways to graduate schools, expanding options for on-line courses and access to Touro's digital library resources. More information on this new alliance will be forthcoming in the near future.

Another high point of the evening was the video presentation that featured the Torah learning and chesed that our Rabbeim, faculty and students participate in on a constant basis. Attendees were able to see firsthand how HTC is intricately involved in the community, stretching beyond the walls of the Yeshiva. Click here to watch

HTC thanks its dedicated Board of Directors, alumni, parent body and gracious community supporters for making this year’s banquet another smashing success. With your constant support, HTC will continue to thrive into its 93rd year and beyond.

Since the project’s inception in 2002, HTC has sent over 65 tons of clothing to Israel.

Hebrew Theological College wishes to thank the Novick family for endowing this most important mitzvah. In addition, we extend a special thank you to Mrs. Pnina Levinson and Mrs. Zehava Krauss, for their tireless efforts in coordinating this project.

Help HTC Receive a $10,000 gift from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation

mr. Wess pic for webHebrew Theological College is excited to announce the launch of our new Life and Legacy Campaign. This new initiative is just one of many ways that alumni, parents and friends of HTC are able to give back to HTC. For over nine decades, HTC has educated thousands of students worldwide in HTC's Beis Midrash and College for Men, Blitstein Institute for Women and Fasman Yeshiva High School.

A legacy gift can come in various forms and need not impact one's finances during their lifetime. Life and Legacy gifts will be used exclusively to support the HTC Endowment Fund, securing the future of HTC and its vital role within the community.

As an incentive to kick off this new campaign, the Harold Grinspoon's Life & Legacy Program will give HTC a one-time cash incentive of $10,000, upon securing 18 commitments to our Life & Legacy Campaign this year. With your help we hope to guarantee HTC's vibrancy for future generations.

HTC encourages anyone who is interested in learning more about this special opportunity to contact the Development Team by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or by phone at 847 982 2500 ext. 132.
