The 81st anniversary of Kristallnacht was commemorated by South Florida's Jewish community at different ceremonies. DKJA was proud to participate in this most special occasion at The Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County and the March of the Living's 18th Annual Kristallnacht Ceremony.
Shomrei HaAdamah (Guardians of the Earth) - A School-Wide Garden Program. The goal of this program is to connect the students of DKJA to their natural world, and help develop a more meaningful commitment to the Earth as it relates to Jewish Life. This truly defines tikkun olam (repairing the world).
From the time-honored traditions of Judaism and the wisdom of the Torah to the learning of modern Hebrew, the study and practice of what it means to be Jewish begins in Kindergarten and continues through High School.
On Thursday, October 3rd, DKJA will be Empowering Extraordinary Lives during our Annual Tzedakah Day! A volunteer will be calling you for a gift to make a difference in the future of DKJA. Please answer the call, let’s do something extraordinary together. #BeEmpowered
Boca Raton’s Donna Klein Jewish Academy has a proud tradition of putting on quality theatrical productions, which after much anticipation sell-out year after year. Now the person behind the stage and beyond the lights is getting some much-deserved recognition. Zoraida Adams, the school’s Drama Department Director was given the ‘Inspiring Theater Educator Award’ earlier this spring at the Kravis Center’s Dream Awards.
Donna Klein Jewish Academy honored a longtime administrator at its annual meeting last month in Zinman Hall. Sharon Kamber spent nearly three decades at DKJA in various roles, first as a substitute teacher and most recently as Senior Director of Community Engagement. Kamber will officially retire at the end of the month and has received many accolades along the way.
Earlier this spring, Donna Klein Jewish Academy sixth grader Owen Sturm placed first in the sixth and seventh grade English Division at the American Chidon Ha’Tanach Bible Contest National Finals at Yeshiva University.
Donna Klein Jewish Academy hosted educational professionals from around the area at its annual Leadership Day, earlier this spring. The day is put on as part of the prestigious ‘Leader in Me’ program, which is based on the book ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ from the late Dr. Stephen R. Covey.
A celestial evening awaited guests at Donna Klein Jewish Academy’s annual ball, which took place late last month at the Polo Club of Boca Raton. The K-12 school celebrated its 40th anniversary, while paying tribute to three honorees for their exceptional dedication to the school and the community.
For the third straight year, Claire and Emanuel G. Rosenblatt High School held its popular and heavily anticipated Minimester, a three-day elective seminar where working professionals come in and teach unique and specific subjects.
Later this month, 10-Year old Eli Zucker will find himself on the ice and in an arena with some of the world’s most talented hockey players. That’s because the Donna Klein Jewish Academy fifth grader and goalie earned a trip to the 2019 NHL All-Star Game in San Jose, by coming out on top in the Florida Panthers’ annual Mini 1-on-1 Tournament held at the BB&T Center in late December.
