Click here for the invitation and other information.

Columbus Torah Academy will honor Rabbi Henoch and Rochelle L. Millen, Ph.D., at the Annual Scholarship Dinner scheduled for Sunday, December 13, 2015.

Esther Bernzweig, Lara Blumberg and Lindsay Schottenstein will co-chair this year’s annual Scholarship Dinner which will be held, for the first time, at the Columbus Torah Academy.

Since 1974, Columbus Torah Academy has been situated on a beautiful 44 acre campus on Noe Bixby Road. Over the years, additions to the facility have created a stunning building and recent renovations have updated the state of the art facility.

The co-chairs have already begun planning and forming their committee of community and parent volunteers to plan an evening that honors worthy individuals and showcases CTA .

Rabbi and Dr. Millen have been an integral part of the Columbus Jewish community since 1987 when Rabbi Millen began as Headmaster at CTA. His impact in that role was beneficial to moving CTA forward. During his tenure the school had both our largest enrollment levels, integrating the New American population into the community, and the establishment of the CTA High School, which has just graduated its 21st graduating class.

A noted author and editor, Dr. Millen is Professor Emerita of Religion at Wittenberg University. She has lectured widely and published on women and Judaism, interfaith issues, and Holocaust studies.

Together their resumes are extensive, spanning from their professional and communal life here in Columbus to New York, Michigan, Ontario, and Israel. The Millens are involved in Jewish education, both teaching adult Jewish education classes at Congregation Torat Emet and in various institutions in Columbus.

The Scholarship Dinner will include cocktails, dinner, a silent auction and evening program featuring highlights from the school year and glimpses of future CTA activities.
