Barbara Leventhal-Stern z”l Honored Through
The legacy of Barbara Leventhal-Stern was recently honored through an art competition at Western Galilee College. Barbara was a poet, painter, craftswoman and Jewish storyteller. One of her works of art is on display in the Harry and Shirley Leventhal Academic Building at the College, named in honor of Barbara’s parents, Shirley and Harry (z"l) Leventhal, who were long-time Israel Education Fund donors.
In a fitting tribute to Barbara, Western Galilee College’s Siman Art Center and the Office of the Dean of Students, in cooperation with the Leventhal Family, held its first annual art competition open to the College’s students. On October 31, 2010, the photo exhibition entitled “Accepting the Other” displayed 15 of the 36 photographs submitted for the competition. First prize was awarded to Revital Avihal, a third year Graphic Design student; second place went to Reut Shealtiel, a third year Graphic Design student; and third place was shared between Jenny Grushanov, a second year Economics student, and Zimorrod Farris, a second year Graphic Design student.
