On Monday Evening, June 11th, the 28th of Sivan, HANC High School seniors graduated before an audience of several hundred proud family members, guests, administration and faculty members. The ceremony took place at The Space in Westbury, New York.
The program opened with a poignant video presentation filmed by faculty honoring the graduating class. The video featured administrators and teachers reflecting on their most meaningful memories with the graduates. Following the processional and the anthems, Rabbi Shlomo Adelman, Principal of the High School, welcomed guests and graduates and introduced salutatorian, Zackary Plutzer, who delivered the invocation. Mrs. Marie Palaia, Associate Principal, greeted the graduates with a heartfelt congratulatory message.
HANC’s Samuel and Elizabeth Bass Golding Elementary School welcomed some very special guests to speak with the students. In the ongoing program to bring Israel alive and closer to the hearts of its students, HANC invited representatives from the organization Panim el Panim to share their experiences in the Israeli army. The Panim el Panim organization works in Israel to provide interactive learning experiences and educational programs for Jewish people living in Israel. In addition, they also work to educate Israeli soldiers by providing classes and spiritual guidance for the Israel Defense Force.
