AMIT Annual Dinner to Recognize Dedicated Leaders and Talented Students

(Courtesy of AMIT) AMIT’s 2018 Annual Dinner will pay tribute to outstanding leaders from different regions who work tirelessly to support AMIT’s mission of building a stronger Israel through cutting-edge, Jewish values-based education. The annual event will also showcase the extraordinary talents of five AMIT students from Israel.

This year’s honorees include Ethlynne and Steve Brickman (Boston area), Anne and Sheldon Golombeck (New York), Peyton Katz (New York) and Debra Speyer (Philadelphia area). AMIT will also recognize the Amy Haber, z”l, Heritage Experience, which enables AMIT students with special needs to experience a life-changing trip to Poland with their fellow students, a powerful, emotional rite of passage that was previously unavailable to those with autism and other cognitive disabilities.

“For us, the key thoughts that arose when we talk about AMIT are superior education, innovation, differentiated instruction and caring,” said Anne Golombeck, one of the tri-state honorees. “Each student is a top priority to every teacher and administrator. The AMIT network builds on the individual strengths of all their children to promote and foster their success. This is what makes AMIT truly unique, and we are so proud to be part of the AMIT family!”

The theme for this year’s Annual Dinner is “AMIT’s Got Talent.” In addition to the outstanding leaders who go above and beyond for AMIT and its more than 34,000 children in Israel, the event will also spotlight the talents of five AMIT students, all of whom are gifted in their own way and benefit from AMIT’s holistic and innovative approach to education.

Among them are Shahaf Mesika, an aspiring singer; Nadav Kaufman, an outstanding student and illustrator/animator; Boaz Avami, an ambitious musician; Lior Cohen, who was born with albinism and works to break stigmas as a community leader; and Adi Hubara, whose passion for music has helped her surmount many obstacles in life.

“I know that when I give to Amit, my support directly promotes top-notch programming specifically designed to meet the unique needs of a community and its students,” said Peyton Katz, another tri-state honoree. “I believe that this innovative approach, combined with a commitment to serve children across religious, cultural and socioeconomic lines, promises the brightest future possible for Israel’s students and, therefore, all of Israel.”

AMIT’s Annual Dinner will take place at Pier Sixty in New York City on Sunday, November 18. To register, please contact Robin Rothbort at [email protected]. To learn more about AMIT, visit www.amitchildren.org.�
