Virtual Scholarship Fund Dinner 2021

Ma’ayanot’s Annual Dinner provides an opportunity to reflect on those areas of our school in which we take greatest pride, and to express hakarat hatov to some of the many individuals who have enabled Ma’ayanot to open our doors and provide in-person education amidst the Covid pandemic. The Annual Scholarship campaign raises funds to enable Ma’ayanot to continue to provide advanced technology, innovative curricula, inspirational Torah growth and more for our daughters, the Jewish leaders of tomorrow.  Our scholarship fund, which is projected to disburse over $2 million this year, ensures that each student, regardless of their personal financial situation, can provide aid to a growing number of families experiencing financial hardship.  Especially in this year of Covid, our families are not immune to the financial and unemployment crisis in the country and need your support more than ever.

We are deeply in debt to our medical committee, Dr. Burt Appel, Dr. Howie Friedman, Dr. Lorie Greenberg and Dr. Dora Suldan for their incredible dedication of time and expertise to open Ma’ayanot during the pandemic.  The committee spent countless hours over the summer to draft and redraft policies in accordance with CDC, Board of Health and NJ Department of Education guidelines. Nurse Tali Feder became the school’s first line of defense against Covid-19, along with the medical committee, helping each family on a case by case basis to review and decide what is best for that individual family and the Ma’ayanot family. Their compassion and attention to detail for the nuances in each case is a tremendous credit to their personal dedication to the both the physical health and mental well-being of everyone in the Ma’ayanot family. Join us as we honor them and thank them for keeping our doors open.

Mrs. Rachel Feldman will receive the L’eila U-Leila Award for Professional Leadership. Mrs. Feldman, our fearless Executive Director, went straight to work and literally moved walls in order for Ma’ayanot to reopen and allow for socially distant classroom space and all the other components, both large and small, of the Reopening Plan to ensure that Ma’ayanot students could return to their home away from home.  Ma’ayanot also honors Rabbi Shaul and Mrs. Sarah Robinson with the V’kalakhta Bi’drakhav Award for Rabbinic Leadership. The Robinsons have always been staunch supporters of Ma’ayanot and we are so thankful to the Robinson family for their devotion and partnership to the school. Our scholarship fund ensures that Ma’ayanot can continue to provide each student, regardless of their personal financial situation, with advanced technology, innovative curricula and inspirational Torah growth. Your participation in this year’s Dinner will allow Ma’ayanot to continue to provide aid to a growing number of families experiencing financial pressure. Join us today in showing Hakarat Hatov to all of our honorees and donate today.
