On Friday, October 21, 2016, over 300 grandparents and special friends gathered at Rashi to share an afternoon highlighted by an inspiring luncheon, meaningful classroom visits, interactive programming with our 8th Graders and their 40 Israeli guests, a choral performance from our fifth graders, and two joyful Kabbalat Shabbat services.
After a brief reception in our Sukkat Shalom, guests enjoyed a delicious luncheon downstairs in the Gymnasium-turned-Chadar Ochel where Head of School Mallory Rome welcomed our guests.
During the luncheon, co-chairs Danna Greenberg and Carole Greenberg spoke about how Rashi's core values are lived every day at the school - from the classroom to the soccer field and into the community - and then carried forward after graduation.
"Our alumni continue the close relationships with their friends that were formed at school, which often develops into a powerful connector in college and into the workplace."
"The Rashi alumni I see possess core skills, deep self-awareness, the confidence to try new things, and solid Jewish values that serve and guide them for the rest of their lives."
