Dear Golda Och Academy Community,
As we look toward celebrating Purim on both of our campuses next week, we are excited and proud that our school continues to be a beacon of light and joy to our students, families and our community. 

Please enjoy this new special Alumni News Winter Edition that features so many inspiring stories and news from our wonderful alumni. 

We are truly grateful for the special GOA-Schechter bond that connects all of us together – alumni, students, faculty, current school parents, alumni parents, grandparents, and friends.
Wishing you and your families good health and strength during this time. 

Kol Tuv, 
Stephanie Bash-Soudry
Director of Institutional Advancement
P.S. Don’t forget to send your Class Notes to for inclusion in our next issue! Todah Rabah!  

Rise Up!

We couldn’t ask for a sweeter way to begin the new year than with this inspirational video of our talented alumni singing Andra Day’s Rise Up! The COVID-19 pandemic moved our alumni to come together in song to send a message of hope and unity to our community. Tremendous thanks to Upper School Arts and Experiential Educator Jamie Mittleman for her vision and coordination of this project; Andrew Mittleman, Upper School Multimedia and Experiential Education faculty for video production; and Craig Resmovits, Upper School Choir Director for the musical arrangement.
