DECEMBER 7, 2017 – Over 300 people attended The Rashi School’s annual Limmud Celebration on Nov. 30 at Temple Beth Elohim in Wellesley. Josh Horowicz, this year’s honoree, is currently in his 12th year as athletic director and fitness and health teacher at the school. Josh’s deep commitment to Rashi’s students and his enthusiasm for inspiring young minds has resulted in a thriving athletic program that spans grades K-8. Sports have always played a significant role in Josh’s life and he believes strongly that participation in athletics is a powerful vehicle for physical, emotional, and social growth for all students.
Josh’s fingerprint on Rashi extends well beyond the athletic department. He has served as a chaperone five times for the school’s 8th grade Israel trip and four times on the 7th grade trip to Washington, D.C. Josh has planned and led class discussions on the dangers of drug abuse, responsible social media usage, and the challenges of the transition to high school.
Friends, family, students, parents, faculty and Rashi supporters honored Josh with heartfelt tributes. One of the evening’s highlights was a special congratulations message taped by Josh’s two-year old daughter Lily.
