“...forge ahead and build...”

A glorious future A Message from Principal Rabbi Haskel Lookstein As we enter our 76th year, we celebrate the fact that we were able to mark 75 years of pioneering in the field of Yeshiva Day School education. Nobody except my father, of blessed memory, thought that a Ramaz would be possible, certainly not on the Upper East Side. Thanks to his vision and planning and thanks to the faith that so many parents had in him and the trust they placed in him, Ramaz was able to be a pathfinder and pioneer throughout 75 years in which the day school population has literally exploded across the entire United States. Now we look ahead. We look to a future that includes physical rebuilding in our Lower School, turning the catastrophe of the fire of July 11, 2011, into an opportunity to provide more and better spaces for our Early Childhood Center and our Lower School, an opportunity that will include the possibility of our finding place for 100 more students whose parents, thank God, want them to have a top-flight yeshiva education. The year 5773 marks the changing of the guard in the leadership of Ramaz with the appointment of Paul Shaviv as our new Head of School. Mr. Shaviv comes to us with decades of the best possible experience. He has the highest praise and recommendations of those who know educational personnel best in North America. We are excited to anticipate the kind of leadership that we know he will bring to a school with a distinguished past, and which, with God’s help, will have a glorious future. We wish him and the entire Ramaz family the blessings of God and the strength of purpose as we move into our 76th year.

“ investment of time and thought...”

‫בית ספר בזרימה מתמדת‬


A Message from Head of School Paul J. Shaviv Ramaz is a school on the move! Last year—our 75th anniversary—was a time to look back and be proud. Now we go into the future with a clear vision, and with a flexible and proactive approach, ahead of the game and not struggling to catch up. In the roller-coaster of school life, with questions and issues coming thick and fast, it is sometimes difficult to make the time to think long-term. But just as we invested in looking back, we must make an investment of time and thought to look forward. On our agenda needs to be a series of questions, including (but not at all limited to): Our Jewish vision—How can we deliver an inspirational Jewish program to our students that meets our ambition to make them literate Jews, and meets their need for emotional experiences and spiritual searching? What is the place of parents in the Jewish vision of the school—and what is that vision in a changing Jewish community? How do we define the collective school ethos to which we expect all partners in Ramaz to subscribe? Our educational vision—What are the distinctive hallmarks of a Ramaz education? How are they applied in the K-12 spiral? In a digital age, what are the meaning and application of key categories such as “education,” “culture,” and “knowledge”? What is the future of “text”? How best do we educate students for the 21st century—and what should we be teaching them? Our organizational vision—Is there an appropriate decision-making process in the school? Without making the school a business, can we be more business-like? Do we communicate clearly? Are we “user friendly”? Are we forceful enough in our marketing and publicity? This year, we will look at these questions in two installments of the school magazine. This edition—Fall 5773—looks especially at issues of advancement, events, and our campaigns. Our Winter 5773 edition will look at school life and activities. Education, the classroom, our community, and our society are all changing rapidly. Schools are live, organic structures, and we have plenty to discuss, debate, and, if necessary, argue (respectfully!). Everyone’s voice is welcome. No organization can afford to stand still. Ramaz is developing and improving. We have a lot to do—and we will do it all, together. So the word is out—we are “a school on the move….”

Guest of Honor and Educator of the Year: Judith H. Fagin We honored Ms. Fagin, Ramaz’s first Head of School, during her last year at Ramaz. She was moved by our heartfelt programmatic tribute, a gift of artwork created by Ramaz students, and the renaming of our annual Educator of the Year award— The Judith H. Fagin Award for Academic Excellence.

a Special thank you

Thank You!

Our Dinner Chairs Kenneth Aschendorf, Sherry Cohen, Nina Davidson, and Ari Storch, as well as our many volunteers and participants, set the tone for a warm and celebratory atmosphere that made the Dinner—and our Annual Campaign— The Best One Ever!

Chesed and menschlichkeit always have been part of the Ramaz mission.Those planning 75th anniversary events understood that a Community Chesed Day had increased significance after the devastating fire at Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun and the displacement of the Lower School and Early Childhood Center at the beginning of the 2011-2012 academic year. What better way to model our thanks to all those in the wider community who ensured that religious services and educational programs continued without delays than by doing chesed and giving to others less fortunate? In March 2012, more than 300 current parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, and administrators joined students from all divisions on the Sunday right before Pesach to perform many acts of kindness. Gathering in the Ramaz Upper School (and in several outside locations), they cheerfully and tirelessly sorted Kosher-for-Passover and chametz food, crafted flower arrangements to grace seder tables, and decorated tzedekah boxes to bring home the day’s theme. Volunteers also wrapped prepared meals of donated food for the Met Council Food Rescue Program and baked brownies and made tea sandwiches that were served to senior residents at Met Council housing, where afternoon entertainment was provided by Ramaz’s Kol Ram Community Chorus. Others painted and beautified the Food Rescue site. We are all connected, one to the other.

‫סיום‬ schoolwide siyyum marks 75 students study entire tanakh Parents and students in all divisions harnessed the power of technology in a year-long study of all 24 books of Tanakh that was celebrated at siyyumim held shortly before the anniversary of the Torah’s revelation, the holiday of Shavuot. Technology allowed Lower School parents to sign up via Google Docs to study several pesukim (sentences) in Bereishit with their children. Middle School students studied chevruta-style and wrote divrei Torah delivered weekly, and Upper School students advanced from lessons on the OU’s Nach Yomi website to posting their personal reflections on a communal wiki. At the special Lower School siyyum (picture bottom right), families joined in a festive meal and heard divrei Torah prepared by students in Grades 1-4 on what they studied with their familes. The siyyum held at Temple Emanu-El opened with hundreds of hands rubbing together to create the sound of wind, followed by clapping to create the rainfall, and simulating the awe-inspiring sounds and experiences surrounding the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. Evocative of the call to Mount Sinai, the shofar was sounded as part of the morning program, and a portion of the Torah relating to the Israelites’ acceptance of the Biblical commandments was read by three students in three distinct styles. Songs of praise and celebration complemented the Torah trope as more than 1000 students from all grades celebrated the anniversary of the school, focusing on the core of the school’s mission statement—our commitment to Torah study, using 21st century tools for millennia-old learning.

Marching in celebration of Israel is a Ramaz tradition that began with the parade’s inception in 1964. At this year’s Celebrate Israel Parade, students and faculty from all divisions, along with family members, marched proudly and sang loudly as they made their way up Fifth Avenue. The Ramaz contingent stepped lively to the accompaniment of the Ramaz Percussion Ensemble. Once again, the Ramaz Band performed atop the El Al float. American and Israeli flags, as well as Ramaz banners, guided the hundreds of Ramaz marchers, as students held two long pieces of blue fabric on either side of the procession and took turns riding a bicycle sporting a Magen David shape. Aerial photos showed—and viewers on high saw—the Ramaz contingent configured like the Israeli flag. CELEBRATE ISRAEL PARADE “AFTER PARTY” A new tradition was born this year when alumni and their families from around the New York area gathered in the Upper School for some cooling refreshments and a light nosh after showing their support for Israel. Alumni already have put the date of next year’s march up Fifth Avenue—Sunday, June 2, 2013—on their calendars so that they won’t miss the next Ramaz Israel Parade “After Party.” Inset photos below from left: Enjoying the alumni “After Party” were Arielle (Wolfson) ’01 & Joseph Jaspan ‘01 and family with Upper School Tanakh teacher Rachel Taub Weinstein   Elizabeth & Alan Mitrani ’91 and family   Sara (Sternstein) ‘98 & Laurence Hasson ’98 and son   Sisters Tamar ’09 and Merav ’12 Gold   Daphna & David Brainson ’87 and family.

‫ליל סרט בוגרים‬ the last survivor alumni film screening Each year, programs are held throughout the Jewish world to commemorate the terrible events that took place in Germany on November 9, 1938, which we know as Kristallnacht, or The Night of Broken Glass. At Ramaz, too, students hear speakers recount how their families were affected or see performances that help them begin to understand the atrocities that took place under Hitler. As part of the multi-layered “Ramaz at 75” programming, more than 125 alumni and community members gathered to remember Kristallnacht by viewing a feature-length documentary, The Last Survivor, which follows the lives of survivors of four different genocides—Holocaust, Rwanda, Darfur, and Congo. The character-based, feature-length screening allowed viewers to explore the idea of genocide in the 21st century in film and in a discussion led by Upper School History Chair Dr. Jon Jucovy, with Rwandan survivor Jacqueline Murekatete, film director Michael Kleiman, and producer Sam Goldberg ’05. As Abbe Serphos ’86 shared, “What I enjoyed most about the event was the age range of alumni it attracted. It was special to see everyone gather in recognition of Ramaz’s 75th anniversary, on Kristallnacht, to support a film on an important topic produced by a fellow alumnus.” From the top: Film director Michael Kleiman, producer Sam Goldberg ’05, and Upper School History Chair Dr. Jon Jucovy explored the concept of genocide   Rwandan survivor Jacqueline Murekatete, panel participant   The Last Survivor film poster.

‫כנס בישראל‬ israel reunion 300 gather to celebrate ramaz at 75 Pride and camaraderie across the generations “We’re #2” could have been the cheer heard at our “Ramaz at 75” event in Israel. At 400 strong, Israel is our second largest alumni community outside the New York/New Jersey area, and Ramaz pride definitely showed when an overwhelming majority of Ramaz alumni from all generations (as well as former faculty members) who live in Israel came to Beit Avi Chai in Jerusalem to celebrate our milestone anniversary. “Pride” and “camaraderie across the generations” described the evening, according to Jenny Bayer-Gamulka ‘85. And with Ramaz’s commitment to the State of Israel, “it was nice to be recognized for fulfilling this part of Ramaz’s educational agenda,” she added. Recent alumni spending a gap year in Israel or serving in Tzahal joined the festivities, too. “We [members of the Class of 2011] got so excited when the video of the teachers at the [January] Dinner Dance came on” said Erica Baruch ‘11. “We [felt] so far away from Ramaz [during the 75th anniversary,] … that video, and the evening as a whole, brought us back.” Even the dessert reception had a Ramaz connection, with catering by the son of Ramaz alumna Rachel Heller Bernstein ‘70. Warmly welcoming attendees in person were Israel Reunion Chair Dr. Beverly Gribetz ‘69; Rabbi Haskel Lookstein ‘49; Director of Institutional Advancement Kenny Rochlin ’86; Director of Alumni Relations Lauren Katz; Chantal Low ‘11, who was serving in Tzahal at the time and is now studying at the University of Pennsylvania; and former faculty members Ricki and David Bernstein.

These fun and festive programs offered a chance to catch up, reconnect, and reminisce. Of course, everyone was amazed at how much has changed at Ramaz and with their classmates and what has stayed the same!

“One of the highlights of the afternoon was when we went around the room talking about how we spent the last 50 years. It was totally fascinating to hear everyone’s life stories—some had been even, smooth and successful, others filled with adversity and difficult times. We all recalled many things about our classmates and, especially, about the many ‘naughty’ things we had done during our high school years. I, for one, will never forget the day!” —Jane (Blechner) Bressler ‘62

“It was incredible; almost half of our class attended [our 40 year reunion], with people coming from Los Angeles, CA, Tampa, FL, Houston, TX, Boston, MA, Cleveland, OH and elsewhere. That kind of response really speaks to the closeness people felt to one another and the school.” —Ken Arfa ’71

“I love attending reunions! I am deeply moved by the memories they [former students] share with me—my class, how much they learned and how they can appreciate what they learned as they became older. Of course, we have good laughs about the many funny experiences that happened in class and thankfully no one ever remembers the bad days. It is always amazing to see everyone grown up!” —Rachel Taub Weinstein, faculty member since 1976 “The video put together by Dan ‘Wild Thing’ Billig was a fun aspect of the night and it was special to have such warm greetings from almost 20 of our classmates now living in Israel. It is a reflection on our class that the unity spans geography and time zones.” —Eddie Karan ’91

“It was nice to hear what people are up to and meet their significant others in person instead of on Facebook. All of a sudden, or so it seems, we became doctors, lawyers and even parents – we’re real adults now. And then you watch the slideshow and see a picture from Pajama Day or Freshman Seminar and for a brief moment (or one night on the Terrace!), you get to be a kid again. It was a great night!” —Dahlia (Adler) Fisch ’02 “Hanging out with everybody on the third floor terrace with a hand (mouth) full of the world-famous Ramaz chocolate chip cookies, I really couldn’t believe it had already been five years. I was really happy to see all of the old faces I had missed, and even more surprised at how many of my old friends were still large parts of my life. Ramaz is an institution that stays with you wherever you go, and the event was really special.” —Mike Rosenberg ‘07

stand with us!

Honoring an Ideal When we gather together on Sunday evening, January 13, 2013, we will be honoring the ideals of activism and advocacy and our love of and support for the State of Israel—hallmarks of a Ramaz education since our founding. Natan Sharansky is a powerful symbol of those ideals. He demonstrated it in the former Soviet Union when he stood up for the right of Jews to emigrate and for the freedom of all Soviet citizens. He manifested it in his heroic conduct during nine years in the Gulag when he refused to knuckle under to his KGB captors and interrogators. He manifested it even more dramatically when, as a minister of the government in Israel, he twice resigned over matters of principle. We also will be giving tribute to Dr. Judy Sokolow, a gifted educator in our Middle School who inspires young children to express solidarity with Jews worldwide and especially in Israel.



This year’s Dinner gives life and emphasis to the core message we hope to provide to Ramaz students today and tomorrow: Activism, Advocacy, Israel. Rabbi Haskel Lookstein
