Roots to Grow, Wings to Fly…
“Roots to grow, wings to fly…”
As we are just weeks away from celebrating our 2017 Gala celebrating lifelong learning at Adat Ari El, I can think of no better phrase to represent our honorees and our School. On Sunday, May 21, we will join together as an Adat Ari El community to celebrate the incredible educators of ADAT – Jeri Dubin, Rabbi Mark Goodman, Julee Snitzer Levine, Shulamit Levitch, and our very own, Robin Solomon. These educators define what it means to nuture the roots that allow all learners to grow and, eventually, soar! I have seen first-hand the impact Robin has had on our current Kindergarten, all of her former students who think back fondly to her class, our 5th grade through her leadership with our Israel Twinning program, and also on our entire school through our weekly Oneg Shabbat celebrations.
I know you will want to come celebrate Robin, as well as the other honorees, at what promises to be a fun evening of cocktails, dinner, and dancing. But, I hope you will also take a moment to consider what your participation means for our community. First, it symbolizes your commitment to nurturing and growing our community right here at ADAT. Second, it represents the importance of education and lifelong learning in your life and that of your children. And lastly, it celebrates the future of ADAT by adding another layer of roots to help our community continue to flourish.
To encourage your participation, Adat Ari El Synagogue is offering a discounted rate of $100 per ticket for Day School parents. Submit your RSVP card or contact Jerry Krautman in the Development Office.
We hope – whatever your reason – that you will join us on this very special evening for Adat Ari El, our wonderful honorees, you, and your children.
