2011mar-NNJ-launchDirector Frieda Hershman Huberman from Northern New Jersey successfully launched a local alumni association on March 8 with guest speaker Rabbi Morey Schwartz, Melton International Director of Curriculum and Faculty Development, speaking on The Miracle of Purim Revisited. Northern New Jersey is our 25th Melton School to establish a local alumni association, and the event resulted in over 50 graduates joining! Frieda shared a quote from event (& alumni association) co-chair, Sue-Ann Levin, who commented, "I thought last night was wonderful from start to finish. It felt great, looked great, Morey was terrific, I wish he taught locally. It was the perfect way to introduce the Alumni Association, promote Melton, learn and meet. It seems to me that everyone enjoyed the program very much and is a good model for future programs."
