TABC Breakfast to Honor Rachel Friedman and Suzy Schwartz

On the morning of June 15th, 2014, To­rah Academy of Bergen County (TABC) will be holding its 9th Annual Scholarship Break­fast, honoring Mrs. Rachel Friedman and Mrs. Suzy Schwartz. The event will take place at TABC, 1600 Queen Anne Road, Teaneck, NJ beginning at 9:30am.

The Annual Scholarship Breakfast is an opportunity for TABC parents and the larg­er community to take part in helping to en­sure that TABC has the necessary resources to provide an exceptional Judaic and general studies education to its students regardless of financial ability. Please join us in this en­deavor, and help us show our appreciation to Rachel and Suzy, two remarkable individuals, and thank them for their dedicated service to our Yeshiva.

Rachel Friedman is a noted teacher, au­thor and lecturer in the areas of Bible and Jewish liturgy. She is Associate Dean and Chair of Tanach Studies at the Drisha Insti­tute for Jewish Education in New York City. She is also the founding Dean of Lamdeinu, a new center for Jewish learning that will open this summer in Teaneck. Mrs. Fried­man has served as scholar-in-residence at synagogues and educational institutions throughout the United States and abroad. She has an MA in Bible from the Bernard Rev­el Graduate School at Yeshiva University and a JD from Columbia University School of Law. She served for four years as chair of the TABC Education Committee. Rachel and her hus­band, Allen, are the proud parents of Elie, Nava and Yosie (‘11).

Suzy Schwartz has been a member of TABC’s Board since 2008 and a member of the executive board since 2009. She came to TABC after serving on the boards of Con­gregation Rinat Yisrael and Ma’ayanot Yeshi­va High School for Girls, in addition to many years of service on both the board and ex­ecutive board of the Moriah School. She has brought professionalism and expertise from her extensive career in corporate advertising, as well as experience in the non-profit world from her most recent position at Yeshiva Uni­versity’s Center for the Jewish Future. Suzy has been involved in many TABC commit­tees over the years, and always brings ener­gy, optimism, wisdom and a sense of balance to the conversation. Suzy and her husband, Will, live in Teaneck with their four children; Racheli, Sammy (‘11), Yoni (‘14) and Tamar.

Please join us in honoring these two won­derful individuals, and ensuring that TABC has the scholarship funds it needs to contin­ue to be a Yeshiva High School of excellence for all bnei torah in our community for many years to come.
