Nearly 400 people attended the Rosenbaum Yeshiva of North Jersey’s scholarship reception earlier this month. The reception honored 13 RYNJ alumni who are now faculty members. U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) gave the keynote address. Dr. Ben Chouake, NORPAC president and RYNJ grandparent and board member, arranged his visit.
Naomi Senter Danzger, Rabbi Raphy Goldstein, Chana Eisenman Greenberg, Deena Fischer Katz, Gail Richman Landerer, Daniella Lejtman, Sarah Levy, Penina Feigenbaum Richman, Yedida Rosenbaum, Bracha Klein Schreiber, Miriam Stanislavsky, Mira Leifer Stokar, and Chana Weil Rossman were the alumni faculty honorees.
Teacher Deena Katz spoke on behalf of the alumni faculty, and 8th-grader Tehila Kornwasser, last year’s Chidon HaTanach national winner and this year’s 10th place winner in the international Israel competition, shared her experiences. It was the school’s most successful campaign and reception to date.
