MetroWest Jewish Day School’s first graduation ceremony is on Monday, June 17 at 7:00 pm at Temple Beth Am. This will be a momentous occasion for our community. Please join us as we graduate six students, five of whom have been in school together since kindergarten. Graduates include: Matthew Heaps of Ashland, Adrin Levy of Natick, Samuel Rothkopf of Ashland, Talia Schnur of Framingham, Rebecca Schwartz of Framingham, and Seth Wulf of Framingham. Speaking at the event will be Renée Finn, MWJDS Founding Chair. The evening will be co-chaired by Carolyn Keller, Founding Head of School and Francine Rothkopf. Carolyn Keller helped to found the school and served as the Head of School for 10 years. Francine Rothkopf served on the original MWJDS Board of Directors, has her three children attend MWJDS and is a faculty member.
 
“Mazal Tov to the graduates and to the MetroWest Jewish Community Day School” says Barry Shrage, President, Combined Jewish Philanthropies.  “The first graduating class of a new day school is a great moment for our Jewish community and for every graduate. May your lives be filled with Jewish meaning and purpose, and fill the MetroWest Jewish community with Torah and Tzeddk (charity) and Chesed(loving kindness).”
 
Michael Bohnen, Board Chair, Partnership for Excellence in Jewish Education (PEJE), is delighted to celebrate the first graduates of MetroWest Jewish Day School.  “We played a role in the establishment of MWJDS, and we share the school’s pride in the fruit of its efforts.  We are confident that the outstanding education received by these students will prepare them well to become active, informed and proud members of the Jewish community and to assume leadership roles.  Congratulations to the students, teachers, administrators, board members and parents.  May MWJDS go from strength to strength.”

MWJDS Board of Directors President, Jody Comins says, “I’m so excited and proud of our first graduating class both as a mother of one of the graduates and the President of the school. MetroWest Jewish Day School started as a dream and became a reality through the generous support of our donors who gave money and families who entrusted us with their children.” She added, “Ten years ago we opened our doors and it’s wonderful to look at all of the amazing accomplishments of our students. We are blessed with a community of volunteers and supporters and I’m grateful for the love and support of our wonderful teachers and staff. I’m proud to have served on the Board since the beginning and to watch our six graduates step to the podium and share their stories and experiences as the first graduates of our school.”
