Q&A with Rabbi Melinda Mersack

My Federation Story: Together, We Can

One of my first memorable Federation experiences was when I went on a young adult mission to Israel 11 years ago. I’d never been to Israel. I was hesitant to leave my children but something in me said “just go, it will be worth it.” And, it was! Israel was simply beautiful. It moved me.

Why Day School?

I joined the Schechter team, exactly one year ago, after working in the public school sector for over forty years.

I have been repeatedly impressed with the students, faculty and curriculum at Gross Schechter. While there are always areas in which to grow, I have seen, first hand, the benefits that come with a Jewish Day School education. Allow me to share a few.
