Yasher Koach to Our Day School and Congregational Educator Awardees

Congratulations to two of our local Jewish educators who were recently honored for their professional achievements, with awards presented through the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County’s Department of Jewish Education, School Educational Services.

The 2013 National Grinspoon-Steinhardt award was presented to Heidi Segal, a math teacher at Weinbaum Yeshiva High School, for her exceptional achievement in local Jewish day school education. A stipend of $1,000 from the Grinspoon-Steinhardt Foundation was matched by $1,000 locally to support her professional development.

Lani Vahnish, a teacher at B’nai Torah Congregation’s Mirochnick Religious School received the 2014 Gerald Legow “Outstanding Achievement in Jewish Education” (OAJE) Recognition Award of $500 before her peers at the annual South Palm Beach County Jewish Educators’ Conference.
