Ma’ayanot Teacher Wins Grinspoon-Steinhardt Award

Every year, since its inception in 2000, Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey has nominated an excellent Jewish educator from one of our schools for the Grinspoon-Steinhardt Award for Excellence in Jewish Education. This year, the winner is Sarah Gordon, a teacher and Director of Student Affairs at Ma’ayanot High School for Girls in Teaneck. Rivka Kahan, Ma’ayanot’s principal, described Sarah as a teacher who “embodies creativity and innovation, is outstandingly thoughtful and intellectually honest, and is dedicated to fostering student leadership and initiative.” Sarah stated that she believes that it is “a privilege to work in a field where you can have an influence and effect on the future leaders of the Jewish People.” She received her award at Federation’s December Board of Trustees meeting.
