Pam Kancher, executive director, said that honoring Rosen was a "natural fit" for the Center and its work to build a more compassionate world. "He has long supported the Holocaust Center and a number of other causes," she said. "His projects in Tangelo Park and in Haiti, his healthcare outreach for his employees, his wonderful support for the University of Central Florida and the Jewish Community Center's Jack and Lee Rosen Southwest Orlando Campus, all speak to his ability to identify with the needs of others. We often use the Hebrew phrase, tikun olam, which means 'repairing the world.' That is clearly what Harris Rosen does with his generosity."
