RASG Hebrew Academy Holds H.S. Graduation

RASG Hebrew Academy's 2012 graduating class

RASG Hebrew Academy's 2012 graduating class

The Rabbi Alexander S. Gross Hebrew Academy held its high school graduation on May 22. The lights were dimmed as the class of 2012 walked down the center aisle to the stage. The ceremony began with a blessing given to the parents and teachers of the 40 graduates.

The audience was then treated to a delightful video. Each student was featured as a baby and then as a high school graduate in cap and gown.

Inspiring speeches were given by Hebrew Academy board president Leah Klein and head of school Dr. Roni Raab. Graduating seniors Brianna Cohen (Ileana Ros-Lehtinen Congressional Award winner), Rebecca Masin (salutatorian), and Ron Lipkin (valedictorian) each spoke. They shared their thoughts about reaching the milestone of high school graduation.

One by one, graduates were called to center stage to receive their diplomas. Finally, there was one more “graduate” to address: English department chairperson Mrs. Ellen Averbook, who was retiring after 26 years of dedication to the RASG Hebrew Academy.

The entire graduating class has been accepted by prestigious universities, yeshivot and seminaries in the United States and worldwide. Many of the graduates were recipients of academic and athletic awards.

RASG Hebrew Academy is an Orthodox college and yeshiva preparatory day school serving children through grade 12. The school inspires and equips students to reach their fullest potential by focusing on their individual attributes and instilling eternal Torah values in a changing world.
