The Lewis Summer Intern program was established in 1987 by Harriet Gerber Lewis z"l, a Chicago-area philanthropist and General Chairman of the 1988 JUF Campaign. Lewis believed that it was the duty of each generation to pass a love for Jewish life on to the next generation. She remained involved with the program to the end of her life.
The program is a project of The Hillels of Illinois and is funded by a generous gift from the Harriet and Maurice Lewis Family to the Continuum program of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago.
