Hillel’s Abramson: ‘Not a good leaver’

In 1973, armed with a theater degree from Temple University and a stellar first job as assistant to the managing director of a major university’s communication school, Shotsy Abramson applied for a position at Hillel at Arizona State University. “I interviewed with Rabbi (Barton) Lee and I was always very surprised that he chose me,” she says. “He had a vision and felt that anyone who could put on shows for thousands of people could put on Passover for 200 and High Holidays for 500.” 

Abramson, who is retiring Jan. 31 after close to 40 years with Hillel, is being honored at a brunch Sunday, Jan. 26 (see details box).
