Neytz haChochma/Achim Academy To Hold Fundraising Dinner


Neytz  haChochma ESE, South Florida’s only non-affiliated Jewish Orthodox special education school, will hold its first fundraising dinner, “Navigate Into the Future” on  Monday, November 21st.  Guests will gather at 6 p.m. at the Miami Yacht Club for cocktails and dinner on the scenic outdoor dining area with beautiful Biscayne Bay just a few yards from their tables.

Neytz and its day school, Achim Academy Center for Education, will present four recognition awards to persons who have expanded outstanding personal efforts for children.  The four awards will go to:

David Lawrence, children’s advocate extraordinaire. In 2002 he led the campaign for The Children’s Trust, established by voter referendum to improve the lives of children and families in Miami-Dade County. Neytz’s Youth Experiencing Success Out-of-School program and a popular summer camp are among the most successful programs funded by The Children’s Trust.

Harriet (Mrs. Alex) Paul, OBM, the late chairperson of the Board of Directors of Neytz haChochma ESE.  For the last 20 years of her life she devoted herself to her chosen charities, the Neytz haChochma school being her prime special project, to which she gave both money and time.

Mr. Gedalia and Dr. Miriam Menaker, long-time supporters, will receive the “Helping Hand” Award for their many and varied contributions to the school and its students. Whenever there is a need, the Menakers can be counted on to help out.

Rabbi Moishe and Mrs. Layah Kievman will receive the “Educators of the Year” award for their outstanding love, devotion and creativity.  The Kievmans run the Neytz haChochma  Out-of-School program at Aventura, one of two Neytz sites funded through The Children’s Trust, as a part of its Hebrew school.

The evening’s cuisine will be under ORB Supervision, Lubavitch shechita, provided by Yaakov Mizrachi of Mizrachi Catering. The theme of the evening will be nautical from the setting to the gourmet food service. There will be a commemorative journal where well-wishers can place a congratulatory message or greeting.

Those wishing to participate can contact Susan Neuman at 305-372-9966 or e-mail miamipr@bellsouth.net or info@aaceschool.net.

Funds raised at the event will go to the school’s scholarship fund and general operating budgets. Neytz ha Chochma ESE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, and all contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

Neytz haChochma ESE was founded in 1999 to provide needed services for students experiencing difficulties in mainstream schools. Each child’s special gifts and talents are discovered in a warm and caring family environment. Individualized study plans are prepared for each student centered on evidence-based best practice models of excellence.

Classes are small, with a maximum of four students per teacher, and personalized instruction is provided as necessary. Neytz haChochma and its day school, Achim Academy Center for Education, are Florida certified for K-12, ages 5-12, and accredited for grades 6-12.

Mistrust that has lingered after the fiasco in Ferguson, Missouri, has edged the issue forward.

“The observance of a kosher diet is a key tenet of Judaism, and one which no state has the right to deny,” said Nathan Diament, executive director for public policy of the Orthodox Union.

Two weeks of intense learning in the classroom about Israel culminated with Yom Ha’Atzmaut. Students attended sessions with their teachers and learned about history, culture, military power, advocacy, slang, cooking, and more.

Rabbi Yisroel Edelman, the synagogue’s spiritual leader, declared, “The Young Israel of Deerfield Beach is looking forward to our partnership with the OU. The impact the OU has brought to Jewish communities throughout the country through its outreach and educational resources is enormous and we anticipate the same for our community in Deerfield Beach as well.”

They may have taken the required courses, scored well on the tests, and earned good grades.

“We wanted to shed light on the mystery that surrounds biblical interpretations. This really is an eye-opening course.”

“This added dimension helps the girls with their hashkafa and ability to educate their children. The added light of chassidus helps combat the darkness children are exposed to on a daily basis.”
