Graduation 2021 took place on May 23, 2021 outdoors along the Long Island Sound on our beautiful campus.  The graduates and their immediate family gathered for an in-person ceremony.  Each student was introduced by a faculty member who regaled the audience with both humorous and poignant details about each students' four years at WHHS.  We were honored and grateful that Rabbi Greenberg was able to join us for the festivities and he received a warm welcome from all in attendance.  The Class of 2021 is headed off to gap year programs in Israel, college and the IDF.  We wish each of them success in all of their endeavors and know that they will stay in touch!

Yom Hashoah Ve'Hagevurah 5781

We were privileged to have our former Head of School, Rabbi Boruch Majerowicz, address the entire school on Yom HaShoah Ve’Hagevurah.  

Rabbi Majerowicz was born in Lyon, France, during the Shoah.  When he was only two years old, his parents, observant Jews preparing for the worst as the Nazis began rounding up Jewish families, brought him to a local convent, where the kindness of nuns sustained him. 

Both of his parents ended up at Auschwitz.  His father was murdered shortly after arrival, leaving his young mother a widow in a freezing camp without clothing or blankets or an actual meal to eat on any given day.  Miraculously, his mother survived, and over the years, shared her experience at the camp, with all its horror to her beloved son.   

 

When asked by one of our students if he had visited Auschwitz, Rabbi Majerowicz responded that he literally could not set his feet on ground that is made up of the ashes of the millions of Jews who were killed there.

The crucial message that Rabbi Majerowicz left us with is our duty to never forget the Gevurah, the resistance of the survivors and their commitment to rebuild and live Jewish lives.
