“May our promise to never forget guide us to a bright Jewish future.”
 -Dr. Ezra Levy, Head of School 

Scheck Hillel students commemorated Yom HaShoah in multiple cities Thursday, while campus welcomed a VIP Knesset delegation from Israel.

On campus, Grades 5-11 gathered for meaningful assemblies produced by students and faculty, highlighted by participation from survivors and performances by musicians in Hillel’s orchestra and band. Students toured a beautiful campus museum curated by our students and Shaliach and Bnot Sherut from Israel that told the story of the Shoah through vivid imagery of photos and videos. In Washington, DC, Grade 8 toured the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum – the nation’s memorial to the Holocaust – where students and faculty conducted a memorial ceremony. And overseas in Poland, more than half of Hillel’s Class of 2016 walked from Auschwitz to Birkenau on the March of the Living International.

The theme of this year’s Yom Hashoah high school assembly was "A Day in The Life Of...." to examine a glimpse into individual survivors’ experiences, described Yehudis Benhamou, Capstone & Social Studies Department Chair, and producer of the special event. Five survivors participated in the Grade 9-11 candle lighting ceremony and then spent the afternoon in classrooms sharing their stories with students in a more intimate setting, allowing for precious time and conversation between generations. Scheck Hillel was honored to welcome Mr. Joe SachsMs. Nusia FrankelMs. Anita KarlMs. Lucy Kalusin and Ms. Regina Behar, all Shoah survivors and inspiration for us all.

Guests of the assembly included a Knesset delegation from Jerusalem. Hillel was part of their tour of American Jewish communities organized by the Jewish Federations of North America and Greater Miami Jewish Federation. Hillel’s tour guides included faculty and Grade 11’s Shayna CohenDana GraffSarah Waxman and Roey Zaken. After the assembly, a visit to a Grade 3 Hebrew class (with a fun dialogue with students b’Ivrit) and other parts of campus, the delegates expressed that they are eager to share with their fellow leadership and constituents the good work the students and educators are doing at Scheck Hillel Community School. Visitors included:

Tzachi Hanegbi (Knesset Majority Leader), Chair, Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee
Meir Cohen (Yesh Atid), former Minister of Welfare

Michal Rozin (Meretz), Chair, Knesset Lobby for Equality and Pluralism

Dr. Nachman Shai (Zionist Camp), Chair, Knesset Lobby for Strengthening the Jewish People

Revital Swid (Zionist Camp), Member, Lobby for Strengthening the Jewish World 

Josh Shwarcz, Secretary General, Jewish Agency for Israel

Rebecca Caspi, JFNA Senior VP for Global Operations, Director General JFNA’s Israel Office

“On this Yom HaShoah, we can’t help but realize that as we look back and remember, we also accept the challenge to look ahead,” said Dr. Ezra Levy, Scheck Hillel’s Head of School in his address to the students and Knesset delegation at Thursday’s Yom HaShoah assembly. “May our promise to never forget guide us to a bright Jewish future. I believe it will – thanks to leadership like yours and through our students with us today.”
