1.20.2017

The invitational basketball tournament was a mainstay on the community calendar during the late 1980s and early 1990s. The tournament was rejuvenated four years ago, through the efforts of Ahron ’76 and Sheera (Kessler) Solomont ’76, co-chairs.
 
Now the tournament has announced a long-term major sponsor, the Gelman family, honoring their beloved brother Leland Elliot Gelman ’82, z”l, who passed away on October 26, 2014 at the age of 50. The event will henceforth be called the Maimonides Invitational Basketball Tournament in Memory of Leland Gelman, z”l.

Three Siblings Recall Student Years at Maimonides Educational Institute

1.20.2017

(Editor’s note: This is one of a series of articles profiling some of the first 80 graduates of Maimonides School, as we approach the 80th anniversary of the school’s founding in October 1937.)

During its first decade, several siblings and cousins helped populate the high school at Maimonides. The surnames were familiar — Bramson, Greenwald, Lesser, Sadwin. Three siblings in the Stern family graduated in 1956, 1957 and 1958, each culminating 12 years at what was known as Maimonides Educational Institute.

“It was very brave of my parents to send me to Maimonides Educational Institute in 1944 — and a great sacrifice,” said Yaffa (Janice) Stern Lauer ’56. “I had gone to public school for a year and was miserable because I had nothing in common with all the other kids, and especially with the non-Jewish teachers.”

Responsibility theme Resonates at Maimo

12.20.2016

Arvut — Hebrew for mutual responsibility — “is something broad enough that it’s a wonderful guiding principle in all of our social interactions,” said Benji Hain, Middle School director of student life, who leads experiential learning schoolwide. “If experienced properly at grade level, it has a lifelong impact.”

After three months, this schoolwide theme-of-the-year program is going very well, said Mr. Hain, who is coordinating the framework and special events and activities. “There has been a lot of excitement from the kids, particularly about working together with all divisions of the school. These interactions bring the school together and make it feel very much unified.”
