A Celebration of Community, Shabbat, and Andrea
The rain held off so that Schechter could revel in our last RELISH of the year! For only the second time this school year, we were able to gather for RELISH outdoors and seated in pods, in accordance with recently relaxed Covid guidelines. Jason Kay (a Schechter parent and newly-appointed President of the Board of Trustees) and Music Tech teacher/IT Director Jamie Debicella played all the Schechter favorites as students, teachers, parents, and members of the community joined in singing and dancing.
The morning was bittersweet; although we were thrilled to come together outside, this marked the last RELISH for Head of School Andrea Kasper. We heard speeches of thanks and appreciation from faculty, the Board of Trustees, and Senator Derek Slap. In addition, we celebrated the achievements of some of our students, including Writer of the Month Evan and the 2021-2022 Torch Ellie. Kol hakavod!
RELISH has been a favorite part of the Schechter experience for so many students and faculty members. Before Covid, this has been a special way to gather as a community every Friday morning, singing and dancing with enthusiasm, hearing stories from teachers and/or clergy members from the greater Hartford area, and welcoming Shabbat.
