The Claire and Samuel Mozel Charitable Trust
Touro Law is grateful to the Claire and Samuel Mozel Charitable Trust for their $100,000 donation. The money will be used for scholarships over the next several years, awarded to students with an interest in Jewish Law. The inaugural Claire and Samuel Mozel Charitable Trust Scholarship recipient is first year student Shira Bloom.
Shira stated, “I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the commitment of the Claire and Samuel Mozel Charitable Trust to students at Touro Law Center, like myself. I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and was raised in Vancouver, Canada. I am a recent graduate of the Lander College for Women, a division of Touro College, where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and graduated cum laude. Prior to this degree, I spent a year studying in Jerusalem, where I learned of the depths and intricacies of my Jewish heritage and traditions. My goals while at Touro Law Center are to work hard and to always be the best representation of myself, as a student and as an observant Jew.”
The Morris E. Fischer, LLC Scholarship
The Morris E. Fischer, LLC Scholarship is awarded to a full-time student who earns the highest mark in the Jewish Law class and demonstrates a strong appreciation for the importance and contributions of Jewish Law. The annual scholarship was established in 2012 by Touro graduate Morris E. Fischer, Esq. ’95 as a token of his gratitude to his Jewish heritage and to Touro Law Center, which fostered a nourishing and supportive environment for him in some of the most formative years of his professional and personal life. After graduating from Touro Law, Mr. Fischer began to engage in a serious course of Jewish law study, including studying several sections of the Talmud and Mishna.
