Principal Leah Sollish, who will deliver remarks at the graduation, reflected on the students’ education over their 8+ years at the school: “Education is the experience of character building, through which a person becomes a mensch. This is the education that we have endeavored to impart to you at CMCH.”
Executive Director Rabbi Isser New, who will also be speaking at the ceremony, wished the students well as they move on to the next stage of their lives.
“We know that your time at CMCH has prepared you well for this next stage spiritually, academically and socially. We all look forward to hearing about your success in the future, and hope that you come back often to share them with us.
