The HANC Family mourns the loss of its Dean Emeritus Rabbi Moshe Gottesman Z"L and is forever indebted in its Hakarat Hatov to him for all that he enabled HANC to become. We wish the entire Gottesman Family continued strength through this challenging and difficult time.
Rabbi Gottesman joined the HANC Family in 1960 and has remained at the center of our Yeshiva. Rabbi Gottesman had a strong vision for a Jewish educational institution to meet the needs of our diverse Jewish community - he gave his time, talent, expertise, funding and unconditional love to build the Hebrew Academy of Nassau County. Through his leadership, commitment, warmth, and educational drive, Rabbi Gottesman enabled the Hebrew Academy of Nassau County to grow and thrive on Long Island.
Throughout the years, Rabbi Gottesman has served as inspirational role model, exemplifying the highest ideals, and bearing the torch of Torah on Long Island. Through his vision and endless hard work, the lives of thousands of young Jewish students have been forever enriched.
The Hebrew Academy of Nassau County will honor Rabbi Gottesman's legacy by continuing to educate and inspire Jewish children throughout Long Island.
