About Our Honorees:
Hillel is privileged to honor Linda and Jeffrey Resnick for their leadership in our Jewish, social, philanthropic and professional communities for more than 40 years. Most recently, Jeffrey completed his tenure as President of Hillel at UCLA’s Board of Directors where he helped usher in a new era of executive professional leadership while ensuring that Hillel’s Jewish Bruin community had the necessary resources to organize and engage 2,000 students annually. Between the two of them, the Resnicks have avidly supported and served in leadership positions across the community. Linda and Jeffrey’s love for Israel and commitment to ensuring continued Jewish connection for Bruins has inspired countless friends, family, colleagues and Hillel students. They are true role models and exemplars of leadership in our community.

Head of the Table Award:
On this evening, Hillel will also remember Ami Karney z”l. Ami graduated with a degree in Law from Tel Aviv University and went on to earn an MBA from UCLA. After school, Ami worked for several decades as a successful stockbroker, commodities market day trader, and business entrepreneur. Known for his devotion to Israel, Jewish traditions, friends and his family, Ami’s legacy will be cemented as we establish the Head of the Table Award for achievement in Jewish student leadership at UCLA.
