Covenant Foundation Award Honors Educators

Three exceptional educators from across the spectrum of Jewish life are 2010 recipients of The Covenant Foundation’s prestigious Covenant Award for their commitment to excellence and for designing innovative approaches making lasting impact on students, community and Jewish education.

Jan Darsa, Director of Jewish Education at Facing History and Ourselves in Brookline, MA; Beth Huppin, a Judaic Studies teacher at the Seattle Jewish Community School; and Dr. Bernard Steinberg, President and Director of Harvard Hillel are the 2010 awardees.

The three awardees join 57 other Jewish educators honored with a Covenant Award since the Foundation established the citation in 1991. Each will receive $36,000, and each of their institutions will receive $5,000.
