In honor of the observance of Kristallnacht, the Middle School students had the privilege of hearing from our own Rabbi Lookstein. Rabbi Lookstein spoke about how the American and American Jewish communities responded to the tragic events in Europe. Based on the research for his book, Were We Our Brothers' Keepers, Rabbi Lookstein concluded that most American Jews kept to "business as usual," out of fear of local anti-semitism, rather than reacting to what was befalling their brothers and sisters in Europe. On a personal note, Rabbi Lookstein mentioned how, when he was a student, he would not wear a kippa or openly carry a Hebrew book on the street. He is pleased that we live in a country where a Jew donning a kippa can now walk proudly down the street....

This past Monday, the Middle School students had the opportunity to hear one of our very own Ramaz faculty members speak about her experience in the U.S. Army. Ms. Lisa Laventure spoke about her patriotism as a main reason for joining the army. We learned about the difficulties of boot camp and how for one year Lisa attended The Defense Language Institute where she learned Czech. She also spoke about the difficulties of being a family member to someone who is in the army. Thank you, Ms. Laventure, for your service.

Ramaz is a school where students discover the best in themselves and in others, where they develop a lifelong love of learning, and where they use their gifts to make the world a better place.
