The Moriah School in Englewood will hold its 50th annual dinner on Saturday, February 20, at 8 p.m., at the Hilton Meadowlands Hotel in East Rutherford. Guests of honor are Jessica and Meyer Orbach; Ali Budin Auerbach ’95 and Jason Auerbach are the Young Alumni Leadership awardees; and Bracha Bluman will receive the Rabbi J. Shelley Applbaum award.
Jessica and Meyer Orbach recently gave Moriah the largest donation in the school’s history. Passionate about education, the Orbachs play an active role in the school’s organizational leadership, participating in day-to-day volunteering and by making Moriah a financial priority. Mr. Orbach’s mother, Yoheved Orbach z “l, for whom they named the campus in 2014, taught them the importance of supporting Jewish day school education.
Ali and Jason Auerbach live in Englewood with their children, Henry ‘23 and Lucy ‘26. Jason is an associate at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP and a member of the firm’s Investment Management Group. Ali is a Moriah volunteer and serves on several school committees. Both welcome new families in the community and acquaint them with the advantages of a Moriah education.
Bracha Bluman has been on Moriah’s staff since 1986. Morah Bracha has taught more than 600 kindergarten students, including children of students. Over the years, she has worked with many of Moriah’s administrators, co-teachers, and colleagues. Bracha and her husband, Mark (“Mr. Morah Bracha”) are parents and grandparents; their family includes four Moriah graduates.
