devote themselves to endeavors of family, faith and community, and to
the education of the youth of the community; and

hope and promise they represent for the future; the Hebrew Academy of

history of providing its students with an educational and religious
foundation which is both strong and enduring; and
WHEREAS, Each year at its Annual Dinner, the Hebrew Academy of the
Five Towns and Rockaway honors members of the school community in recog-

of the community's children; she is currently an associate at Bellmore-

WHEREAS, Janine is an active member of HAFTR's Board of Education and
takes a daily interest in the educational needs of all HAFTR children;
she is also a member of the Community Chest where she serves on the
Neighbors in Need Committee, which allocates funds to local families
which are challenged in meeting their daily needs; Janine is proud, in
addition, of her involvement in Sharsheret as well as with the Shaare
Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem; and
WHEREAS, Cal Nathan attended New York University where he received
both his undergraduate and graduate degrees from its Stem School of
Business; he is currently a partner at NYFF Events, a leading national
events company which most recently opened offices in Israel; and

past three years and is active in the school's Political Action Commit-
tee; currently, he is also a Five Towns Community Chest Board Member
