Joan and Harvey Bucholtz, current grandparents and alumni parents
As a parent you make repeated, important, decisions about your children' lives. None might be more important than choosing the neighborhood in which you will raise them and the school to which you will send them. If you want to project what sort of people your children will grow up to be, consider carefully what kind of people you are exposing them to (from The Book of Jewish Values by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin). SSDS of Essex and Union, now GOA, is the 'neighborhood' we wanted our children and now our grandchildren to be part of. We will continue to do all we can to make certain this special place will thrive and be available for the greater Jewish community.
