His Next Goal:
From supporting pre-meds to Holocaust awareness, Maury Hoberman, M.D. is on a mission to help students succeed.
When Maury and Joyce Hoberman chose to help ensure the Holocaust wasn’t forgotten over time, their decision was simple: they called West Chester University’s development office.
That call in 1998 set the wheels in motion to create a Holocaust Endowment and a Holocaust Education Center. Over the years, the Hobermans have helped secure over $200,000 for the program, supporting an expanding curriculum as well as international speakers and student trips.
“If you teach a teacher, that may be just one person,” Maury says. “But that teacher will teach multiple teachers for multiple generations. I’m proud to have helped the University make such a big impact.”
It’s just one of many ways Maury has invested in students’ love of learning. As a former physician and rabbi (“When I asked my rabbi friend why I’d want to go to rabbinic school, she answered, ‘Well, it’s a lot of studying,’” Maury jokes), he’s supported the University through the West Chester University Foundation in multiple capacities.
In addition to his generous gifts, Maury serves on the Foundation’s board. Like his decision to support Holocaust education, Maury’s efforts are an extension of his values.
“My wife and I have been fortunate in achieving our life goals,” Maury says. “If some of us can lessen the financial burden and stress for students, what better way than to help someone get a jump start? WCU’s been very good to me, and it’s time to give back.”
