On Sunday, August 20, Orloff CAJE honored two teachers from the Broward community for their excellence in teaching: Ivy Shamus of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and Alison Weintrob of Beth Emet Elementary School.
Ms. Shamus received the Pola & Ludwik Brodzki Family Award for Holocaust Education in the Public Schools, for her work in bringing the History of the Holocaust course to the school four years ago. This class has grown to six full classes of juniors and seniors. Her classes create an annual Spring Event for Broward County Holocaust survivors which includes a luncheon and student entertainment.
Ms. Weintrob received the Abraham & Shulamit Gittelson /Grinspoon Day School Educator Award. The award is given each year to a teacher in a Jewish day school who has dedicated his or her life to the enhancement and enrichment of Jewish learning. She is a 19 year veteran teacher, who has gained a well-deserved reputation as a creative and engaging educator.
