Rabbi Yerachmiel Gorelik, who teaches a Judaism course at CSU, met with President George W. Bush Tuesday along with nine other Rabbis from around the world as part of an ongoing White House initiative to bring awareness to the Jewish community.
The Rabbis, who were selected from thousands from around the globe, watched Bush sign the 30th annual presidential proclamation declaring April 16 as Education and Sharing Day, USA, an initiative originating with Ronald Reagan’s presidency in 1978.
“It was a tremendous honor to be selected along with 10 other Rabbis from around the world,” Gorelik said.
The signing comes the week prior to Passover when Chabad will gather in the Lory Student Center to celebrate the yearly dinner.
