The Milken Family Foundation, through the BJE of Los Angeles, honors four teachers out of 1,000 Day School teachers in Southern California each year.
The prestigious annual award recognizes an educator’s commitment to education, their students and their Mosod.
Cheder Menachem was once again chosen for this recognition at the school ceremony on Tuesday, 26 Tishrei, when this presentation was bestowed upon Rabbi Dov Goldman, fourth grade Rebbie.
The award was given in the presence of Dr. Gill Graff, Director of the BJE, Mr. Richard Sandler of the Milken Family Foundation, members of the Milken Family and faculty and students of the Cheder.
The ceremony was covered by local press and filmed for the formal Awards Luncheon to take place in December, where Rabbi Goldman will receive his $15,000 award.
A surprised Rabbi Goldman thanked the BJE and the Milken Foundation for the award and his colleagues and talmidim for their support. He expressed his gratitude to Hashem for all the brochos and thanked the Rebbe for the z’chus to teach in Cheder Menachem.
The Cheder is proud to be recipient of this award for the second time in three years. It is a reflection of the devotion, expertise and professionalism of the principals, rabbeim, teachers and staff– and the love of Torah demonstrated by the students.
The excitement and pride was shared by all who were present.
Congratulations Rabbi Goldman for a well-deserved honor!
