Schechter’s Honor Society reception featured a number of displays of creative and innovative Schechter student work, artwork by renowned artist Carol Barenberg (Schechter grandparent) and some of Galerie d’Orsay’s finest masterpieces. In her remarks during the evening’s program, event chair Penina Magid (Director of Enrichment) spoke about how profoundly different the world which our students will enter as adults will be from the world today and the kind of tools they’ll need in order to be prepared. Twenty-first century learning through a Jewish lens is one of three pillars of the school’s strategic plan and was a key focus of the event. The program concluded with this video.
Special thank you to Honor Society hosts, Schechter parents Sallie and Jay Hirshberg, who are generously donating 10 percent of the proceeds from any purchase to Schechter’s Annual Campaign, through December 31, 2016.
