Scholars in Boston

On Monday, juniors who are part of the Jeff and Rachel Sutton Scholars Program, headed to Boston for their overnight, where they visited colleges and toured the different neighborhoods. At Boston University, they met up with Alumnus Ralph Shweky, who spoke about the Jewish life on campus and the Hillel House, which he is very involved in. At Brandeis University, they met up with Alumnus Naomi Haser, who spoke to them about how she adjusted to campus living and being away from home.

When Dads Teach

We are fortunate to welcome Mr. Freddy Zalta, father of Freshman Carol Zalta, to teach our drama elective while Mrs. Norma Tawil is out on maternity leave. Mr. Stevie Elbaz, father of Freshman Ralph, runs our Real Estate Club! 

                                                  There's a reason our students love to meet up with their teachers after they graduate, like in Brooklyn College for a class at the Hillel House with Mrs. Grace Boiangiu, and that's due to the bonds and relationships they foster while in MDYHS. 
Truly unique and special!
