Dear Readers (Dads & Grads)

by | Jun 2, 2022 | Trending News

Dear Readers,

A couple of weeks ago, it seemed that everywhere I turned, people were talking about graduations. Were there more than usual, or were we all just so excited to have proper ceremonies at the appropriate time and not the drive-by celebrations of 2020? Whatever the reason, a lot of diplomas were being awarded.

Inspired by all the graduation activity, I sent a few emails to parents, friends, and colleagues asking for information about their 2022 grads, with an additional request to share the email with others. The exciting results of those queries—and many years of study—begin on page 16. Especially notable are the families with two, and even three graduates this season! Thank you to all who responded and to those who helped spread the word.

Not to be left out, the entire class of 2022 Strelitz International Academy graduates is celebrated on page 15.

Of course, there wouldn’t be any grads without the dads. Jewish News asked several ‘kids’ to tell us about their fathers. Beth Cohen Jaffe, Michael Nusbaum, and David, Miles, and Stephen Leon share the wisdom and inspiration they’ve learned from their dads, Bob Cohen, Charlie Nusbaum, and Arnold Leon. The piece begins on page 24.

Mazel Tov to the Class of 2022 and Happy Father’s Day to the dads of all years!
