Higher

and

Higher

Reaching

The next chapter begins with realizing that life is not just about survival or success. It is about significance. It is about making a difference for others. It is about inspiring others to reach beyond themselves. Some schools focus only on success. Their teachers teach what they are supposed to teach. Their students get good marks and get accepted to the best universities. Other schools reach higher. They go l’ayleh ul’ayleh. They are schools of significance. They are schools where everyone involved serves. They are involved in building an institution that serves and shapes the community, not just the students enrolled in the school. Their students and graduates feel a responsibility to give back to the community. In these schools, teachers are not just subject-matter experts who confine their range of concerns to the four walls of their classroom. They are generalists who take responsibility for what goes on outside their classroom. Schools of significance have board members who go beyond where they go naturally. They focus on the long-term welfare of the school and not the immediate concerns that relate directly to their own child. Parents who go l’ayleh ul’ayleh contribute their time, money, and wisdom to the school because they understand that it is training the future leaders of the Jewish community. They initiate and problem solve. Donors who go l’ayleh ul’ayleh may not even have a child in school, yet they give generously to TanenbaumCHAT because they understand that Jewish day school education is a communal responsibility. They also teach others that an intensive Jewish education is the best way to secure the future of the Jewish people. The next chapter in TanenbaumCHAT’s venerable history is to take and become the premier school of significance.

TanenbaumCHAT has earned a world class reputation for educational excellence. As an exemplary school, where is there room for growth?

L’ayleh ul’ayleh.

GRANDPARENT Day

8 | CHATTER MAGAZINE FALL | WINTER 2013


E RI C A L IP W ORTH ’14 PRESIDENT, TCK STUDENT COUNCIL It is only fitting for us to shout from the rooftops about how accomplished, beautiful, wise, considerate, capable and unique our grandparents really are. They are the ones we can go to when our parents are mad at us, the ones who use their “lack of hearing” as an excuse to make you come closer and cuddle, who make you wear a jacket on an August night “because it’s cold at night”, or worry when you’re 17 and don’t have a steady boyfriend or prospects for marriage. Our grandparents lick their fingers when scrolling through pages on an Ipad, and are the same ones who claim not to know how to use a computer, but manage an active Facebook account to track your every move and “shep nachas” while liking your pictures. And most of all, they are the ones who worry whether we have a Jewish education worthy of the sacrifices they and the generations before them have made.

We are proud to share some wonderful photos and excerpts from remarks delivered to our grandparents by our campus student council presidents.

LAI NI E YALL EN ’14 PRESIDENT, TCW STUDENT COUNCIL Our grandparents, and the generations before them, are the ones who have endured hardship, and struggled in times when it has been hard to keep a Jewish identity, but maintained it, in order to raise a Jewish family, and found a Jewish legacy. It is their inspiration and Jewish values that bring us here today, that have inspired the success of the Jewish community of Toronto, and allowed us, the students of TanenbaumCHAT, and your beloved grandchildren, to grow up and attend one of the leading Jewish day schools in the country. Each day at TanenbaumCHAT we accomplish remarkable things, both inside and outside of the classroom, both in sciences and in sports and everything in between. We push the boundaries of what is thought possible to achieve as a high school, and with unconditional support from our teachers and administration we continue to go above and beyond, setting, and breaking records. On behalf of the student body, I would like to thank you, our grandparents, for always being our biggest fans, for supporting our successes, and for making them possible, for continually inspiring us to be better leaders, thinkers, and achievers, and for instilling in us a sense of Jewish identity. This morning we celebrate you and all that you make possible. We know that everyday of the year is Grandparent’s Day, but today we’d like to honour you with extra food and recognition. Enjoy!

Participation e n o y r e v E r o f Something

[

Variety is a key component to our student activities. We are excited that so many of our students want to get involved, but one of the crucial elements is having a balance between clubs, committees, shows, assemblies and fundraisers. It’s not uncommon to see a student who is involved with planning a UJA fundraiser, but is also a club member on Israeli Affairs or the spirit committee, and a performer in the school musical. Clubs that are successful often have a student chair and /or staff advisor who are very passionate about the particular activity. That type of spirit and drive can be contagious.

During Clubs and Committees Day, Main Street at TanenbaumCHAT is packed with over 40 Clubs and Committees showcasing a multitude of interests, causes, and fun lunch meetings that students can choose from. As TCK Campus Principal, Dr. Levy says, “Our students work hard and play hard, in that order.” Before school, at lunch and after school the classrooms and hallways of our school are buzzing with extra-curricular fun, blossoming friendships, the development of real-world skills and charitable deeds to help others in need.

CELEBRATINGSUCCESS Together!

On the first Monday after Labour Day, guests were welcomed by appreciative students to the official ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the opening of the Guttman Family Science Wing. A high spirited group of celebrants toured the new facilities while enjoying tasty hors d’oeuvres and toasting 16,000 square feet of science delivered on time and on budget. Over and above the traditional ribbon cutting, by lead donors Allan and Helen Guttman, mezuzot were hung by families celebrating their gifts to the new wing. Campaign chair Leanne Matlow had a lot to be proud of as she addressed the happy crowd. This GUTTMAN FAMILY SCIENCE WING is a testament to the present and a statement about the future. It is a story born in dreams and words around countless boardroom tables, a staunch refusal to take no for an answer, brilliant visionaries who researched and drew the plans for a 21st century state of the art facility, and numerous skilled tradesman who Together, through team work, created this wonder. This new wing is a labor of love made possible by hundreds of families, volunteers, teachers, administrators, students and other members of our Jewish community including the Jewish Federation of Greater Toronto.

DONORWALL The timing seemed right for a recognition facelift as construction on the Wallenberg campus continued to improve the school facilities. The new Hall of Honour – running between the south lobby and Sonshine Square, tells the story of years of building, growth and philanthropy by a generous Toronto Jewish community. The wall now reflects the three major capital projects that have propelled the school into its place as one of North America’s premier Jewish day schools. Starting in 1999 the Creating Space Campaign was launched due to the exploding enrollment in the school, building the Hennick Atrium, the Meyer/Finkelstein gymnasium, and the two story “C” Wing. In partnership with UJA Federation, the Tomorrow Campaign in 2007 saw the construction of the state of the art Kimel Family Education Centre. Now, the 2013 Together Campaign building the Guttman Family Science Wing completes this wonderful story.

I S R A E L

TCW STUDENT, LINDSAY BLOOM ’15 SHARES HER EXPERIENCE AT THE MACCABIAH GAMES

As team captain of the Canadian U19 Junior Girls Basketball team, Lindsay joined some 9,000 athletes from around the world and over 30,000 spectators for the opening ceremonies at Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem. Walking into the stadium with the rest of the Canadian delegation was particularly special for her while her parents and grandparents cheered her on from the crowd. Their three week experience in Israel began with a week of training and touring the country while being based in Jerusalem. The Canadian delegates then relocated to Kibbutz Givat Olga, together with British junior athletes where international friendships began to forge. Competitions took place at the Wingate Institute in Netanya, but athletes also took the time to join the spectators and cheer on their fellow athletes. Their evenings were filled with programs where they could meet some of their competitors from other countries. One of those exciting evenings included a performance from special guest, Carly Rose Sonenclar, well-known performer on Broadway and the X-Factor. Although the Maccabiah games are over, the memories remain. As Lindsay explains, “This unique and defining experience incorporates competition, Jewish unity, and the opportunity to create new friendships that can last a lifetime!”

Involvement

Q& A

How does being involved in extra-curricular activities play in to your TanenbaumCHAT experience and what skills have you acquired in turn?

Being involved in activities most definitely enhances my high school experience, academically and socially. Model UN helps advance my research and public speaking skills, not to mention it has helped me develop new friendships. Peer Coaching allows me to work on my problem solving skills as well as practice and improve on my leadership skills. Being on Athletic Council is fun and rewarding, as I love playing sports and recruiting others to join in. Being a part of two sports teams is a great way to make good friends and stay active. A lot of my good friends are the ones I am on sports teams with. I’d say the most important skills I have gained by being involved, is time management and organizational skills. Time management is the key to success for an involved student. People always ask me how I have time to do all that I do, and I attest this ability to proper management in getting my school work done, attending all my meetings and practices, and leaving time to hang out with my family and friends. LINDSAY BLOOM , TCW ’ 15 Model UN, Peer Coach, Member of Athletic Council, Member of the Varsity Girls Basketball Team and Softball Team, Member of the Robotics Club

Why is it important to get involved in extra-curricular activities, whether it be a club/committee, sports team, or drama etc?

It is absolutely integral for all students to get involved in extra-curricular activities in order to enhance their school experience. It is very easy to become overly consumed in your workload, so getting involved provides an outlet and balance from all the stress in school. By partaking in activities that take place outside of school time, you get to meet new people, form new friendships, and become informed and passionate on more issues. Z AC K BLATM AN, TCK ’15 TCK morning announcer, Peer Coach, and junior head of Cancer Awareness Week

What advice would you give to a student who may be nervous about getting involved? The advice I would give to a student who might be a bit nervous about getting involved is: we are here for you. TanenbaumCHAT is here for you. This school community is filled with students who, just like you, want to have fun, learn, explore and grow. TanenbaumCHAT is filled with staff who are here to provide you with whatever foundations you need, helping to guide you along the way. Getting involved may seem like a daunting task at first. I can absolutely relate to this, since I was the kid who sat alone at my locker for my first few lunches at TanenbaumCHAT. However, signing my name up on that audition sheet taped to the door of the drama studio in September of Grade 9 was the best move I ever made, because from then on I was no longer the kid who wanted to hide from it all, I was the kid who couldn’t get enough of the extra-curriculars offered at our school. Everyone is welcoming, everyone just wants to have a great time – and I promise that if you get involved in whatever it is you are interested in, you will have a great time too and the stresses of school will be much more manageable.

TANENBAUMCHAT IS PROUD

Laurie Wasser

TO ANNOUNCE ...the appointment of Laurie Wasser as the Director of Development for the Kimel Family Education Centre. Laurie has been an integral part of the Advancement Department since 2005, most recently serving as Major Gifts Manager for the Together Campaign. Through Laurie’s efforts as well as those of the entire advancement team, TanenbaumCHAT has raised close to $8M for construction of the new Guttman Family Science Wing at the Wallenberg Campus.

You will find Laurie’s office in the Central Administration Office at the end of Main Street at TCK. She can be reached on her direct line 905-292-4381 or lwasser@tanenbaumchat.org. C o ng r at ul ations, Laurie, a nd al l t he be s t i n your new role.

OFDEVELOPMENT Business students at the Wallenberg Campus were more than excited when they returned to school this year to find an exciting new venue

Learning

for their classes. Thanks to the power of philanthropy by a generous family, the Ossip Business Boardroom was “open for business” this September. The classroom, a former science lab was converted over the summer months. The room provides a technology rich learning environment for business courses and the extra-curricular entrepreneurs of DECA. From flat screen to water cooler, this new learning environment is seeing students approach their classes in a more professional manner. The new boardroom is not just for kids either as many faculty and volunteer meetings are now regularly held there. With great appreciation for their generosity, this gift from the Ossip family is the first step towards the development of the TanenbaumCHAT Centre for Business & Leadership.

Faculty is at the heart of TanenbaumCHAT’s education.

Coming Back…

Alumni I will never forget sitting in my grade 12 Jewish studies classes. In Dr. Malamet’s Rabbinics class I was challenged to think outside my comfort zone and confront Judaism in a true and honest manner. In Rabbi Applebaum’s Ethics class, comfortable and secure discussions allowed my own personal thoughts and ideas to emerge. After studying Physics with Dr. Honig I felt as though physics was incorrectly categorized as secular and was really an extension of kodesh. Now, teaching Rabbinics myself, I feel privileged and proud to be able to continue on the path laid down by such excellent educators.

Rabbi Michael Rootman ’99

Head of Tanach, Kimel Family Education Centre

My years at TanenbaumCHAT were some of the most formative of my life. My teachers influenced what courses I took in university, how I felt about Judaism and Israel, and taught me how to think critically about the world around me. Now, to be teaching alongside my own teachers is truly amazing. I continue to look up to them as mentors, and I am proud to be one of their colleagues. I hope to inspire my students in the same ways that my teachers inspired me. I look forward to continuing my professional growth at TanenbaumCHAT and I am so excited to give back to a community that has been so important in shaping my life.

Their son, Jack, is in Grade 7 at Associated Hebrew Day School, and daughter, Julia, is in Grade 9 at TCW. Simona reminds Julia about the value of good friends, as some of her closest friends are her TanenbaumCHAT friends. Josh encourages Julia to enrich her high school experience by becoming involved in the wide array of extra curricular activities offered by the school.

since they were in Grade 10. Married since 1996, they still talk about playing on TanenbaumCHAT’s softball team, writing for the school newspaper, their Washington trip, their graduation weekend, and the everlasting friendships they made. Their son, Jacob, is now a Grade 9 student at TanenbaumCHAT’s Kimel Family Education Centre (TCK). “We sent Jacob to TanenbaumCHAT because we knew how much we valued our own TanenbaumCHAT experience.” said Karen, “We are always telling Jacob how well-prepared Steven and I were for university after attending TanenbaumCHAT, and we want him to be just as well-prepared.”

They both enjoyed extra-curricular activities, a love of Israel and Judaism, intramural sports and being with good friends. Not only do they hope Brooke has the same experience, but they wish for more. They want Brooke to walk away from TanenbaumCHAT with values similar to what they learned in school and perpetuate in their home to this day; hard work, discipline, sense of community, giving back and tzedakah.
