(Courtesy of The JEC) The Jewish Educational Center’s annual gala dinner was held on May 15 at the Westmount Country Club, where supporters celebrated 77 years of academic excellence as well as honorees who exemplify the JEC “family.”

Rosa and Herman Engel, Grandparents of the Year; Yael and Jonathan Pittinsky, Parents of the Year; and Bryan Fox, Community Service Awardee; are all committed to their families, Jewish education and The JEC in particular, and the Jewish community. They have all contributed to the wellbeing of each.

The school also celebrated JEC alumna Naomi Horowitz (Bruriah ‘13), who was named 2018 valedictorian of Kean University, and alumnus Jared Rutner (RTMA ‘13), who was named 2018 valedictorian of Yeshiva University, as well as the current accomplishments of JEC students in the Bruriah Torah Bowl and JEC and Bruriah high school students in the CIJE competition, among others.
