EMHDS Inaugural Gala
Projecting new light upon a neighborhood gem!
The Board of Directors at EMHDS presented their First Annual Gala on Thursday, May 10th, 2018. The event venue was the exquisite 501 Union in Brooklyn.
A Lifetime Achievement Award was bestowed upon Mrs. Shirley Weichselbaum for an incredible life-long and accomplished career as teacher, educator, and administrator at EMHDS. Her thirty plus years of service will forever be remembered.
The Gala was dedicated to Keren Benor A”H, with the Board announcing a Fundraising Drive to rename and make improvements to the Music Room in her memory. Keren was a student with a beautiful soul who loved, lived and appreciated Art and Music. To ensure Keren's love of music echoes continuously within EMHDS students, please donate to the Keren Benor A”H Music Room Fund. May Keren's memory be an inspiration.
East Midwood Hebrew Day School is an inclusive, traditional, Jewish elementary and middle school located in the East Midwood section of Brooklyn. We are a passionate team of educators whose mission is to create a better world by developing students to their full academic, spiritual, social and physical potential—guiding them with timeless Jewish values and traditions to promote their success in life.
Our secular education prepares our students with the full range of skills they will need to face the realities of today’s knowledge-based and digital world. Our Judaic Studies/Hebrew education immerses our students in our faith with the great universal truths of Judaism which include Kavod, Derech Eretz and the ruach of our diverse heritages. It builds a sense of self-worth linked to the ethical code of conduct which is central to Jewish teachings.
At East Midwood, our students educational experiences range between Moses and Macbeth, Biology and the Torah. Our students learn that the bicultural education they receive reflects the deepest concerns of their teachers and parents, who are the most influential role models in their lives.
