The concept of the Golden Apple Award was inspired by one of the greatest teachers of the Jewish tradition, Rabbi Eliezer ben Hurkanos, who taught 1900 years ago to “Get your life in order one day before you die.” Since no one knows what day that will be, we need to do it every day.

This event is an annual reminder to the entire University that all of us should always be giving our “last lectures.” The Golden Apple Award honors those teachers who consistently teach each lecture as if it were their last, and strive not only to disseminate knowledge but to inspire and engage students in its pursuit.
