On June 12, Epstein Hillel School will hold its annual meeting at 7:30 p.m. and will award Bruce Haskin the Ernie Haas Presidential Award. The award is named in memory of Ernie Haas, a loyal and active supporter of the school for over 40 years.
Over the years, Haskin has been deeply involved with the school – as a parent, board member, treasurer, president, and member of its finance committee. “He lives the values that Ernie Haas exemplified, and he continues with that dedication today,” said outdoing board president Ariel Berger.
The theme of the annual meeting will be “If The Shoe Fits,” a reference to incoming president, Mark Farber, who has spent his career in the shoe industry. This annual meeting offers a poignant and special evening of recognition and tribute, honoring leaders, faculty and staff, and alumni for their longstanding commitment to the K-8 Jewish day school located north of Boston.
At the annual meeting, Farber of Gloucester, an alumni parent board member, will be formally elected as Epstein Hillel’s new board president. Also, Susan Stahl and Kate Urman will be formally inducted for a three-year term on the Board of Directors. In addition, Bob Goldman, Marjorie Patkin and Sue and Bill Stibel will be joining the Trustee Leadership Council.
Special tributes will be paid to Diane Knopf, Director of Community Engagement, and Michelle Unterborn, school nurse, who will be leaving Epstein Hillel. Jessie Winkler will also be recognized for her five years with the school.
Alumni Jacob Abbisso (Hillel class of 2014) and Ashley Orenberg Waterberg (Hillel class of 1998) will be presented with the 2018 Adam Madorsky Social Justice Award and will be recognized for their efforts.
The Annual Meeting is open to the entire community followed by a dessert reception. RSVPs appreciated; call 781-639-2880.
