Ma’ayanot Yeshiva High School for Girls in Teaneck will hold its annual scholarship dinner on March 6, motzei Shabbat, at 8 p.m. This year, the dinner will be online. Ma’ayanot will pay tribute to its honorees, who enabled the school to open its doors to its students this fall.

Rachel Feldman, the school’s executive director, will receive the L’eila U-Leila award for professional leadership. She reported for work and literally “moved walls” so Ma’ayanot could reopen with socially distant classrooms.

Tali Feder, the school’s nurse, working with the medical community, was Ma’ayanot’s first line of defense against covid-19, helping each family to review and decide what worked best for them and the Ma’ayanot family. Ms. Feder and the Ma’ayanot medical committee, Drs. Burt Appel, Howie Friedman, Lorie Greenberg, and Dora Suldan, will receive the Nedivut Lev award for community service. The school also will honor Rabbi Shaul and Sarah Robinson with the V’kalakhta Bi’drakhav award for rabbinic leadership.

Ma’ayanot’s annual dinner provides an opportunity to reflect on those areas of the school in which the community takes greatest pride, and to honor some of the many people who have enabled Ma’ayanot to open its doors and provide in-person education during the pandemic. The annual scholarship campaign raises funds for advanced technology, innovative curricula, inspirational Torah growth, and more for its Jewish leaders of tomorrow. The scholarship fund, which is projected to disburse more than $2 million this year, ensures that each student, regardless of her personal financial situation, can receive an excellent education and enjoy robust co-curricular activities.
