South-Florida-logo

The Rabbi Alexander S. Gross Hebrew Academy held its first Alef Hebrew Honor Society Ceremony on January 3. Twenty-five students were inducted. The Hebrew Honor Society recognizes outstanding achievements in the study of Hebrew language and literature and promotes an understanding and appreciation of the culture of Israel.

Hebrew Honor Society members have demonstrated the qualities of diligence, initiative and commitment to helping others as well as academic excellence. Selection for membership is made by a faculty council based upon student scholarship, character, leadership and service.

Candidates must have completed a minimum of three semesters of regular level high school Hebrew language and maintained an overall grade of 90 percent or better. Candidates and members must participate in extra curricular activities such as publishing, tutoring, performing or learning activities in Israel. Honorary members may be chosen on the basis of their scholarly distinction or notable contributions to the field of Hebrew culture and literature.

Robert Schwartz, founder of the Southeast region of The American Friends of Magen David Adom (MDA), was guest speaker during the event. MDA is Israel’s national emergency medical, disaster, ambulance and blood bank. The Hebrew Honor Society has taken the support of MDA as a community-service project.
