History:

Steven Rubin established the Ilana and Steven Rubin Educational Endowment Fund as part of a promise to his wife, Ilana. Rubin says the scholarship was created for those wishing to go to university or other institutes of higher learning, but who may not have the “A+” threshold and required financial help to fulfill their academic aspirations. Ilana Rubin, a second generation Holocaust survivor, was a Hebrew teacher at several Ottawa Jewish schools between 1978 and 1990.

After the Rubins moved to Florida, she continued teaching until 2004, even after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2001. When she could no longer teach, she refused to give up, serving as a teacher’s aide until 2006. Ilana was loved by her students as well as fellow faculty members. Ilana Rubin treated her students like family and was known in both Ottawa and Florida for her kindness and generosity. She often helped students learn Hebrew and prepare for their bar and bat mitzvahs without charge.
