WESTCHESTER DAY SCHOOL AT OUR 66TH ANNIVERSARY DINNER

KAREN AND DANIEL KOSOWSKY GUESTS OF HONOR

VICKY AND MICHAEL TUREK KETER SHEM TOV AWARD

SANDRA SECKULAR FACULTY AWARD SATURDAY, JANUARY 11, 2014 ‫מוצאי שבת י‘ שבט תשע“ד‬ BUFFET DINNER FROM 8-9:30 PM PROGRAM BEGINS AT 9:30 PM DOUBLETREE BY HILTON HOTEL TARRYTOWN


This year we are proud to pay tribute to individuals who have dedicated themselves to our school. Karen and Daniel Kosowsky, proud parents of two WDS graduates, Ben (’11) and Jordana (’13) and a sixth grader, Ellie (’16), have contributed to our school in myriad ways. Karen and Dan have given of their time and energy to ensure WDS students receive the highest quality affordable Jewish education. As an active member of the Board and Executive Committee and now as President, Dan has guided the school with vision and a steady hand. A member of the PTA board for almost 10 years, Karen has been an asset to the PTA. Chairing the book fair, serving on the liaison committee, being a Class Parent, and organizing the Bnei Mitzvot gifts are only some of the many ways she has volunteered her time.

Vicky and Michael Turek have two wonderful children, Jonathan (’10) and Fanny (’14). A highlight of Fifth Grade, the Heritage Fair, would not be possible without Michael’s creativity and skill. Indeed, he is the “professional” school event photographer and has provided us with a wonderful pictorial history of our important school events. He is also a consummate advocate for WDS, representing the school’s interests politically to benefit our students. Vicky can be seen regularly around the halls of WDS, an active coordinator of the Learning to Look art appreciation program for the last five years (and Learning to Look teacher for ten!). She has volunteered her time working on the annual dinner in various capacities. Vicky and Michael are involved and invaluable members of the Young Israel of New Rochelle community.

Sandra Seckular is a rare find and a true talent. At WDS since 2005, she has been an outstanding and devoted teacher. Her passion for math, her humor, and her true concern for each and every one of the children she teaches has made her beloved by her students and valued by her peers. She boasts a wide array of professional credentials and has raised the quality of the WDS Middle School Math Department to an enviable level. Mrs. Seckular and her husband Alan are the proud parents of a son, Evan, and his wife, Jennifer.


Dear Friends, I am thrilled to welcome you to Westchester Day School's 66th Anniversary dinner honoring Karen and Daniel Kosowsky, our Guests of Honor, Vicky and Michael Turek, our Keter Shem Tov Award recipients, and Mrs. Sandra Seckular, our Middle School Math teacher and our Faculty Award recipient. All of our honorees, in their own dignified and humble manner, represent the ideals of WDS – a commitment to Jewish education, a love of Israel, academic excellence and serving the greater Westchester Jewish community. Karen, Daniel, Vicky and Michael volunteer a significant amount of their time to benefit our school, all while juggling their own demanding professional careers and family obligations. Mrs. Seckular is a superb and talented teacher and is beloved by her students and their parents alike. Karen and Dan personify excellence and community service and we are grateful that they have taken a leadership role at our school. They are the proud parents of two WDS graduates, Ben (‘11) and Jordana ('13), and Ellie who is currently in 6th grade. Dan has served on the Executive Committee since 2007 and has been the President of WDS since 2010. As President, Dan has guided our school with vision and purpose to ensure that our children receive the highest quality Jewish and secular education in a warm and nurturing environment. He is an innovative and dedicated leader and paved the way to provide a more affordable Jewish education to the Westchester community by reducing tuition in the lower grades. Dan's sharp mind, quick wit and calm manner have made him a natural born leader. We are also extremely proud to give our thanks to Karen who has devoted her time and effort in invaluable ways, both as a chair of events and programs as well as a member of various committees. Since 2005, Karen has served as a member of the PTA Board. She has chaired the annual book fair for five years and the Business Directory for two years. Karen served on the Liaison Committee and has been a Class Parent. For the past several years, she has organized the Bnei Mitzvot gifts. Vicky and Michael, recipients of the Keter Shem Tov Award, have served WDS in many capacities and have left th their own unique mark on WDS. They are the proud parents of WDS graduate, Jonathan ('10), as well as Fanny, an 8 grader graduating this year. Michael has been an active member of both the Board of Trustees and the Education Committee. He has been the creative force behind the successful 5th grade Jewish Heritage Project since its inception. Michael has also served as the WDS liaison to local politicians and has successfully advocated for our school in a variety of political arenas. He may be most famous however for his position as “professional” photographer at all of the major school events, getting all of us to smile with his endearing British accent. Vicky has served WDS with her elegant style, and is always a willing and able volunteer. From the outset, Vicky was a staunch proponent of the Learning to Look art appreciation program and has been an active coordinator of this program for over five years. She has also chaired and worked on the Annual Dinner for many years. The Tureks are true leaders and we are proud to recognize their many years of service to our school and to the broader Westchester community. Sandra Seckular is one of the stars of the teaching profession. She has been our Middle School Math teacher since 2005 and has raised the quality of our Middle School Math Department to a level that is second to none. Her professional credentials are astounding. She is certified to teach Elementary Math and English, Early Intervention Special Education, Middle School Math and English and Library Sciences. Most importantly, Mrs. Seckular is beloved by her students who marvel at her unique blend of structure and humor, along with her passion for the material and concern for each and every student. Mrs. Seckular and her husband, Alan, are the proud parents of Evan and his wife Jennifer. Tonight, we also honor our Mezinka families. This is a bittersweet moment for us as we acknowledge these families whose youngest children in the school are graduating this year. Collectively, these 15 families have sent 34 children to WDS, amounting to 290 school years – that is true commitment to our school. We are confident that these children will continue as bnei torah and will use the tools that WDS has given them to tackle the challenges of the 21st century and to become leaders in their communities. While we wish these upcoming graduates and their families the best as they move onto their next chapter, they will always be part of the WDS family. Mazel tov to the Blitz, Blum, Danzer, Ecker, Fischler, Gorin, Klaristenfeld, Lebowitz/Klestzick, Leibowitz, Povman, Ritvo, Schorr, Smith, Steinmetz, Turek and Wildes families. David J. Goldschmidt Chairman of the Board


Dear Westchester Day School Community, Welcome to one of the most important events of the year on our school's calendar. The annual dinner is a unique opportunity for parents and teachers to say thank you to each other for all they do for the school. It becomes a mutual admiration society. Parents show their support for the school, thereby thanking teachers, and showing faith in them, for everything they do for their children on a daily basis. Teachers thank parents for entrusting their children to them at such a critical time in their lives and acknowledge the partnership necessary to raise children to become the young men and women we all know they can be. It is and should be a joyous time. It is also a time to take a step back and a deep breath and to look beyond the tests and homework and carpools and social issues to see a larger purpose; to recognize the impact that a day school education can have on a child, a family, a community, a nation, and ultimately, the world. That is really what brings us here together tonight. 3000 years ago, the Jewish People also stood together, on the precipice of the Red Sea, with the Egyptians closing fast behind them. – “‫ויבקעו המים‬...‫“ ”ויט משה את ידו על הים‬And Moshe stretched out his hand...and the waters divided.” And as if that wasn't enough, the Midrash says something extraordinary on those last few words. Not only did these waters divide, but at that moment, “‫“ ”כל מים שבעולם‬all the waters of the world [divided].” The Midrash is saying that what is happening at that moment at the Red Sea has an impact far beyond that place, that the fate of the Jewish People is linked to the world around it. There is a larger purpose. WDS is honoring individuals this evening who embody that philosophy. Karen and Dan Kosowsky, Vicky and Michael Turek and Sandra Seckular are about more than just themselves, more than just their own children, more than just what WDS is today. They have dedicated a significant part of their lives to enabling others to have an enriching day school experience and to enabling WDS itself to enrich the local community and beyond. They understand and subscribe to the larger purpose. Tonight we celebrate parents, alumni and faculty – and, of course, students! - who are all part of something larger than themselves. Mazal Tov to the honorees and to everyone who has made this cherished school what it is today and what it will be tomorrow. Rabbi Joshua Lookstein Head of School


IT MATTERS is an anonymous poem which reflects the personality of our Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Sandra Seckular, teacher par excellence of 7th and 8th grade math: As I walked along the seashore This young man greeted me. He was tossing stranded starfish Into the deep blue sea. I said, "Tell me why you bother Why you waste your time this way. There's a million stranded starfish--Does it matter, anyway?"

And he said, "It matters to this one, It deserves a chance to grow. It matters to this one. I can't save them all I know. But it matters to this one--I'll return it to the sea. For it matters to this one And it matters so much to me.

Each year, Mrs. Seckular asks, "Who are the students in my class? What are each one's challenges and strengths? How can I help each student reach his/her full potential? How can I be the glue that holds the class together for optimal learning for all?" After doing her research, she proceeds to make personal contact, offering each student immediate focused academic feedback and attributing their successes to effort as well as to acquired skills and ability. She has carefully embedded the criteria for success into her assignments, and each student is pushed to perform at high levels. She monitors each student and swoops in to communicate positive "You can do it" messages regarding an expected work procedure. With a broad smile on her face at all times, the students become her starfish, as she passionately encourages them to take risks by experimenting with new ideas, and models for them constant learning and effort. Her concern for her students does not end when they leave her classroom. She has prepared for each student the answers to that night's homework so that they can check their work and get a better understanding of the material before walking into class the next day. Parents are frequently called to rejoice with them on a child's success or to offer guidance and support to help prepare a student for an upcoming test. Before her senior classes leave the nest, she is focused on teaching transferable skills that students can use, independent of the high school of their choice. Her students love her because they trust her, knowing that she has their welfare in mind. It is this trust that drives them to make the effort needed to perform the quality work she expects them to do. For in Mrs. Seckular's heart, "..it matters to this one, and it matters to me". I have had the honor of working closely with Mr. Michael Turek as we guide the 5th graders and their families in the process leading up to the Heritage Fair. Mr. Turek uses his photographic expertise to take pictures of each artifact, after school for several hours, as well as in his home, late at night. He does his own developing and is satisfied only when he feels that the lighting and position of the artifacts are perfect. Following this initial step, he creates a Heritage book, devoting a page to each student's artifact and the personal story behind it. The books have become precious heirlooms for the students. In this manner, Mr. Turek has bestowed on each family an eternal legacy to be handed down from generation to generation. Mrs. Vicky Turek also uses the medium of pictures with which to teach the children. A veteran teacher in our Learning to Look program, she shares with the students her love and knowledge of the classical art masterpieces. Thank you, Vicky. Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Kosowsky for their service and leadership in helping WDS attain this special place in our history. May they go from strength to strength. Francine Greenberg Assistant Principal, General Studies


Tonight we celebrate sixty-six years of the miracle of Westchester Day School. For words of inspiration we can look to this morning’s parsha, ‫ פרשת בשלח‬and the triumphant song that Moshe conducted upon seeing the splitting of the sea. Regarding these famous words of song, two questions come to mind: Why does the Torah state – “‫“ ”אז ישיר‬Then Moshe will sing” (in the future tense), instead of, “Then Moshe sang”, in the past tense? Why is ‫ אז ישיר‬included as part of the daily recitation of ‫ פסוקי דזמרא‬which clearly states that we will be praising HaShem with the songs of King David – “‫ ”ובשירי דוד עבדך‬the book of Psalms? The splitting of the sea occurred in the Torah itself and not in Psalms. The Ohr HaChayim HaKadosh answers that the words “‫( ”אז ישיר‬Then Moshe will sing) hint to the need to continue to sing this song. “‫ ”אז ישיר‬teaches us that the splitting of the Sea was not merely a one-time miraculous event in Jewish History that inspired song and celebration. But rather, the splitting of the Sea is meant to be commemorated and remembered daily. What are we to remember by singing ‫ אז ישיר‬today? The miracle of the Jewish people which is based on the commitment of two parties. By reciting ‫ אז ישיר‬we remember that HaShem saved us at the Sea. We also remember the essential role that the Jewish people played in saving ourselves. According to the midrash, the splitting of the Sea only occurred after the heroic act of Nachshon ben Aminadav, who jumped into the water before there were any signs of miraculous events to occur. This praise of HaShem and the Jewish people is worthy to be mentioned in ‫ פסוקי דזמרא‬every day. Mrs. Sandra Seckular performs miraculous wonders on a daily basis in her math classes. Students who struggle with organizational skills do not struggle in Sandy’s class. Students who struggle with their own self-confidence in learning do not struggle in Sandy’s class. Mrs. Seckular inspires within each of our little “Nachshon ben Aminadavs” a belief in his/her own abilities as a student to conquer any challenge that comes their way. And because of her commitment to her students and excellence in teaching, WDS students consistently sing the praise of Mrs. Seckular. She is a most worthy recipient of the WDS Faculty Award. The miracle of WDS was built over sixty-six years ago on the dreams and labor of Jewish communal leaders who believed that the continuity of the Jewish community in Westchester County rests on the solid foundation of a strong Jewish education for our youth. WDS is fortunate to count among its leaders Guests of Honor, Karen and Daniel Kosowsky and Keter Shem Tov Awardees, Vicky and Michael Turek. The Kosowskys and Tureks have led WDS in every aspect of the school’s daily functioning. By sharing their wisdom, creativity and expertise in all areas of school life the Kosowsky and Turek families have perpetuated the miracle of WDS. For that we sing your praise. Mazel Tov!
