Congratulations to the Upper School students who presented the musical "Hairspray!" The performances were a culmination of two and a half months of hard work by a tireless cast of terrific students. Shout-outs to seniors Maxine P. and Sam D., who led the cast brilliantly both onstage and off, Seniors Amit A. and Gil C. and Junior Ilan S., all of whom contributed both exceptional performances and immense spirit and dedication, and to Freshman Lily K., who in addition to performing onstage, also painted sets. The show was a resounding success, and a prime example of one of the ways in which Ramaz is such a special place. To view the show, please click...

The French Culture Club was honored to welcome our very own member, Arielle L. '21 as our featured speaker. Arielle spoke most eloquently about the iconic French martyr, Joan of Arc. Students learned that Joan of Arc was born into a peasant family in Northern France, but she rose to the ranks of heroine, soldier, and leader of armies. She was guided by a "divine calling" to lead the French against the British in the Hundred Years' War....

Junior Navi classes experienced a special program led by Mr. Seth Davis, Executive Director of IsraAID, an Israel-based international non-governmental organization. IsraAID's mission is to support people affected by humanitarian crisis, and they partner with local communities around the world to provide urgent aid, assist in recovery, and reduce the risk of future disasters. The teachers wanted their students to understand Sefer Yonah, not only as an ancient Judaic text, but one whose message is relevant today, and give them the opportunity to "actualize" the prophet's message. For more and for photos of IsraAID work...

A group of eight freshmen and seniors were treated to another event sponsored by the Martin and Susan Sanders Family Foundation for Classical Music Enrichment at Ramaz: a trip to see the New York Philharmonic in action at Lincoln Center's David Geffen Hall. Accompanied by Mr. Lev-Ari, Mr. Henkin, and Mr. Elisha, the students attended "Bronfman and Beethoven," a performance conducted by Jaap van Zweden that featured solo pianist Yefim Bronfman playing Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major. As Elizabeth N.C. '20 said," I loved this trip and the Sanders program in general is because I get to take what I'm performing in choir or learning in Music Theory [class] and see how professionals are applying it."...
