Our Queens’ students are truly blessed!

In time for the Jewish New Year, Queens University of Charlotte’s Hillel is proud to present Mimi’s Matzo Ball Soup! Multiple times a year, students and staff on campus will be able to find comfort and relieve stress in the traditional Jewish way — with a cup of homemade matzo ball soup “Mimi style”.

Patty Karro Gorelick (lovingly called “Mimi” by her grandchildren) was a lady of great taste, kindness and intellect, as well as a fashion icon, and a President of Queens University’s Learning Society. She cared deeply for and nurtured well her family and the many communities of which she was a part. The Mimi’s Matzo Ball Soup program is a gift from the Gorelick family to honor Patty and infuse Queens’ campus with the love, warmth, and wisdom Mimi/Patty shared with all who were fortunate to know her.

It is a great way for our Hillel students to share a piece of our Jewish culture while creating lasting positive memories of matzo ball soup for our diverse student body.


  1. What a lovely way to remember Patty. I am sure your Hillel could also acknowledge donations with a copy of Patty’s recipe as a thank you and lovely memory of a beautiful lady. Mattye Silverman
