Thank you to the faculty, administration and staff of the Schechter School of Long Island for giving my grandchildren Ariel '15, Sara '17 and Noah '20 the best education in a loving, supportive and caring environment.
My husband Philip z"l and I support the Jewish tradition of learning. We support Schechter because we have seen the superb education, friendships and overall community our children and grandchildren have been blessed with.
I am so proud of all the contributions Ira and Sheri have given to Schechter; they too understand the importance of a Jewish education.
Thank you to the Gala Committee for all your hard work to make this gala a huge success.
