From The Voice of Her Students: In Memory of Mrs. Chaya Newman

Dreyfus-113012-Newman

For me, the memories begin with one pink, sprinkled doughnut. Left on the new girls empty desk, five Septembers ago.

Chana Perline, Bruriah Class of 2013

I never had Mrs. Newman as a principal. But she created the safe and beautiful place, Bruriah, that I today call home.

A Sarah Schenirer of our times, Mrs. Chaya Newman was a trailblazer in the field of women’s Jewish education. She inspired and guided thousands of students and fellow educators with the careful curriculum she created, and example she set. She had the rare gift of bringing out the best in her students, commanding respect while remaining as loving and accessible as a grandmother.
