Jessica and Chuck Myers, co-chairs of the RISE Campaign with Cindy and Andrew Janower, have exhibited exceptional leadership skills to the school as well as to the local Jewish community.

“We are thrilled to present the Myerses with this prestigious award,” said Rashi Head of School Adam W.

It is a privilege to recognize these talented individuals for their truly outstanding leadership.”

Jessica and Chuck Myers, residents of Weston, are the proud parents of two Rashi alumni, Sam, ’20 and Ben, ’21, and current eighth grader, Josh, ‘24. “We love The Rashi School as parents and as community members,” said Jessica and Chuck. “Rashi has provided our three sons with a nurturing environment to grow as students, individuals, and community members.”
