The 2019 Rashi Annual Dinner

On Sunday, May 19, more than 450 guests attended The Rashi School’s 2019 Annual Dinner at the Seaport Hotel Boston. This year’s event honored Dena and Michael Rashes (parents of Emma ’13, Lily ’16, Daniel ’18, and fifth-grader Hailey) in recognition of their leadership and ongoing commitment to Rashi and the greater Boston, national, and global Jewish communities.

Ambassadors Representing the Kehillah (Community)

Our Eighth Graders served as ambassadors and warmly welcomed guests. Our Eighth Grade speakers Talia W. and Sadie Z. gave powerful speeches about how their Rashi experience helped to shape their Jewish identity.

The 2019 Tikkun Alum Award

Zoe Jick ’02 received the 2019 Tikkun Alum Award. Recipients of this annual award are recognized for their dedication to social justice beyond their years at Rashi. They serve as role models and heroes to our students when they spend an entire day at the school teaching about their work.

We extend a heartfelt thanks to all those involved in the planning and execution of this year’s event and for helping to make it Rashi’s best Annual Dinner yet!

Celebrating Rashi

At this festive annual event, we come together as a community to celebrate our wonderful school, to honor two oustanding individuals for their ongoing leadership and commitment to Rashi, and to recognize a Rashi alum for her dedication to social justice and tikkun olam (repairing the world).
We encourage all parents, grandparents, alumni, alumni parents, and friends to join us for this annual Rashi tradition, which is our largest and most important fundraiser of the year.
