Colorado State University’s Rabbi Gorelik Named One of Six Best Teachers
Rocky Mountain Collegian,Tuesday, September 09, 2014
Donning a long beard and a kippa on the crown of his head, Colorado State University’s Rabbi Gorelik is not the type of philosophy teacher one would expect to walk into a classroom, joking with students in a thick Australian accent. For the past nine years, Gorelik has succeeded in making CSU students laugh, yet also contemplate their beliefs. He was named one of the six best CSU teachers for the 2013-2014 school year by the Colorado State University Alumni Association. “Being Jewish, especially a rabbi, doesn’t mean you have to be outdated or archaic, but you can be with it,” Gorelik said. “I felt honored that they nominated me as best teacher.”...

The Garden Island - HI,Monday, September 08, 2014
It’s not every day that a new Torah arrives on Kauai. In fact, it is something that has never happened before, at least not until recently, said Gani Kauai Rabbi Michoel Goldman. So when the time came for Kapaa resident Richard Seigel to give back to the Jewish community in memory of his late father, he could think of no other place to do so but on Kauai. “My family has a tradition to donate at least 10 percent of whatever we receive to charity, and what better charity to donate to than Gani because we need it,” Seigel said. “We already have two good ones right now, but this will definitely be of benefit to the community.”...
