In honor of "Uncle Ben," who, with joy and pride, counted his nieces as his students for over a decade at Schechter Manhattan. Your influence on our school and community will not be forgotten. Thank you for your countless mornings of rising before dawn, phone conversations in bridge traffic, SNL-level Purim videos, and seeding the culture of menschlichkeit for which our school is known.
and
In honor of Julie Sissman and Phil Richter, whose dedication to our school has paved the way for many parent volunteers to roll their sleeves up and get involved. Thank you for your leadership, your innovation, your listening ear and your guiding voice.

Kol Hakavod to our friends Ben Mann and
Julie Sissman & Phil Richter, representing the most extraordinary professional and lay leadership.
 
As one of the six founders of this exceptional school, we certainly did not complete the work to reach this milestone. But we take enormous pride and nachat to see how much further those leaders who have come after us have taken Schechter Manhattan !
 
We are so grateful for all you have done and are honored and humbled to be recognized for our Nachshon-like jump into the sea 25 years ago

 Kol hakavod to all the honorees.
 
A special kol hakavod and todah rabah to the founders and everyone else who helped make SSSM a reality back in the 1990s when it was just a dream. You enabled my children to receive a superb education that instilled in them the principles of menschlichkeit, tzedakah, and tikkun olam, qualities that are so sorely needed in our society today. We could not be more grateful.
