On International Women's Day and every day, Scheck Hillel recognizes the strength of our community - of our People - that comes from our mothers, grandmothers, daughters, aunts, teachers and all of the loved ones and mentors who guide us and came before us. You inspire our rising generation of daughters and sons.
In recent weeks, we celebrated the return of the Modern Jewish Woman program. Grade 11 families gathered to honor the women who have raised and taught them, as well as women from the pages of history books. Remarkable installations recounted the stories of courage and spirit that nurtured Jewish traditions m’dor l’dor, from generation to generation. Guest speaker Lisa Baratz shared her own journey as a modern Orthodox Jewish mother, grandmother, educator and attorney. Kol HaKavod to the students and their teachers, Dr. Hana Barouk and Rabbi Elie Ganz. And thank you to every eshet chayil in the lives of our students.
