Our Celebration Was a Blast … From the Past, Present, & Future
This past Saturday night, we had a blast – from the past, present, and future – with over 300 Day School parents, alumni, ECC, Synagogue, and community supporters joining us for our Day School’s 1st Annual Celebration – Back to ADAT’s Future. With a DeLorean and an ’80s theme as the backdrop, the vibrancy of our community was in full effect – dressed in ’80s costumes, noshing on delicious food, and having a blast dancing to the tunes of the Spazmatics cover band and a DJ. Check out the pictures here!
Among the highlights of the evening was a chance to showcase our new video showing our students living our mission everyday at ADAT. This is just one more piece of our year-long roll-out of creating, adopting, and integrating our mission into every aspect of school life. We hope you enjoyed it and will share it, comment, and like it on social media.
Of course, the evening was made even more special by honoring Haim Linder and his many accomplishments at ADAT over his 37-year career here. Haim’s impact has also been felt beyond the walls of Adat Ari El. As a dedicated volunteer in the Jewish community and, particularly, Israeli organizations, Haim has dedicated his life’s work to education, Judaism, and Israel. We were thrilled to meet and welcome so many of Haim’s friends in the Israeli community to ADAT and to celebrate Haim in this meaningful way.
On another note, I wanted to make sure that all of you have your calendars marked for the Celebrate Israel Festival – which will take place on Sunday, May 6, 12 p.m.-7 p.m., at Cheviot Hills Recreation Center. I will be there with my family, and I encourage all of you to join me for a day of fun, live entertainment, activities for kids, food, and community, celebrating Israel, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Learn more here.
If you come to the festival, please make sure to wear your ADAT clothing to show that our community is there in support!
Thank you all for making our 1st Annual Celebration a true success in every way. We couldn’t have done it without you or our incredible co-chairs Natalie Sirin and Anat Duvdevani. Your presence, spirited costumes, and energy made it an incredibly memorable evening for me, and I hope for you, as well. We cannot wait for what next year’s celebration will bring!
Have a wonderful weekend!
