Recognized by the Commission of Jewish Education of the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford (JFGH) for their uniquely effective work at their respective West Hartford synagogues, these teens received awards at the Federations 70th annual meeting, held at Congregation Beth Israel in West Hartford:
(L to R) Ellen Schenk, Stephanie Rosenthal and Jacob Graber-Lipperman, from The Emanuel Synagogue, and Leah Goldman of Beth El Temple, with Federation board Chair Emeritus, Judy Schlossberg. Not shown: Miriam Katz of Beth El Temple.
The Commission also awarded Nancy Fichman and Robin Rosenthal winners of the Innovative Program Award for their board game: “The Passover Skeptic,” which allowed for participating students and their families (Grades K-7) to learn facts about Passover.
By progressing through a game, students and their families learn about Passover, with information from Torah texts, commentaries and the Haggadah. See: Innovative Program: DESCRIPTION / Innovative Program: APPLICATION
