Rabbi Emeritus Hillel Gamoran

Rabbi Emeritus Hillel Gamoran

Rabbi Emeritus Hillel Gamoran, who was Beth Tikvah's first full-time rabbi, served as the spiritual, educational, and religious leader for 34 years, before retiring in 1994. Rabbi Gamoran was instrumental in Beth Tikvah achieving the reputation of having one of the finest Jewish religious schools in the Chicago area, with many graduates receiving college credit for Hebrew. He also was a staunch supporter of sending our children to OSRUI, the Reform summer camp in Wisconsin. As part of his retirement gift, congregants established an OSRUI camp scholarship fund in his honor. Since retiring, Rabbi Gamoran has taught Jewish studies at the University of Washington. He and his wife, Judith, still maintain a residence in Evanston, so they can be seen periodically at Beth Tikvah for lifecycle and other special events.
