SCHECK HILLEL AND KESHER BRING TECH TO ELDERLY

CASE Awards North Miami Beach, Florida – Scheck Hillel Community School and Kesher shared Apple iPads with Regents Park Nursing Home, so their senior residents may connect with loved ones during this time of social distancing. This technology will also allow students of the two schools to conduct Facetime chats, send pre-recorded messages and virtually perform music via the schools’ band and orchestra for the nursing home’s residents. The students visit the nursing home regularly throughout the school year and hope to maintain the bonds through technology.

Vanessa Donaher, Head of Scheck Hillel Community School, and Dr. Ezra Levy, Scheck Hillel’s Rabbinic Head and Kesher’s Head of School, personally delivered the iPads. “We want to help our community in every way we can. We understand that this time of isolation can be very hard on the elderly, especially when they can’t be with their loved ones. Hopefully this can help as many of the residents and students know each other from the weekly visits we make throughout the year,” Donaher said.

Dr. Levy reflected: “This moment of crisis and uncertainty reinforces the need to incorporate the core values we teach our students into our daily life. Today is an example. It is our hope that this technology will bring joy and comfort to our neighbors.”

SCHECK HILLEL COMMUNITY SCHOOL CONTINUES ACADEMIC GROWTH AS VIRTUAL SCHOOL

ONE OF NATION’S LARGEST JEWISH DAY SCHOOLS SWIFTLY TRANSFORMS TO VIRTUAL INSTRUCTION

CASE Awards

North Miami Beach, Florida – Within 48 hours, Scheck Hillel Community School transformed its entire academic program for more than 1,100 students into a virtual school as an effort to keep the campus and community healthy and to uphold its commitment to continued academic excellence. With this nearly overnight transition, students and teachers are continuing to maximize learning while not physically on campus. On March 12, Scheck Hillel was the first independent school in South Florida to announce its move to virtual instruction.

“I want to thank our faculty and staff for working tirelessly to create a most meaningful educational experience, our parents for their partnership, and our students for their technological savvy, resilience and smiles,” said Vanessa Donaher, Head of Scheck Hillel Community School. “Our students are our responsibility: thus this proactive action to lead and help ensure their well-being and that of our faculty, staff, families and the greater community. As a Jewish day school, we have an ethical and moral responsibility to do our part in helping to stop the spread of this virus. Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone affected by COVID-19.”

In an effort to keep screen time to a minimum, every grade level has an age-appropriate mix of independent work assignments as well as live instruction and recorded content, which can be accessed via desktop/laptop computers, mobile phones, tablets and web-browsing smart TVs. In addition, live classes are scheduled at different times to allow time for siblings to share access to family devices.

“Students have been absolute rock stars! They have adapted so well to this new environment,” said Katie Geiman, a Kindergarten teacher at Scheck Hillel. “Their whole world just kind of flipped upside down, but they have been absolutely wonderful.”

Enrichment is also extending into virtual instruction. Every week, students receive physical education videos with fitness and nutrition tips that kids can apply at home, music challenges, and art assignments. Maintaining the school’s focus on social-emotional development, all teachers and counselors have daily office hours and personally reach out to students weekly. In older grade levels, students have weekly meetings with the grade’s guidance counselor, and the school’s counselors, from Early Childhood through High School, are at the ready to provide support for students and families through live virtual sessions, mindfulness tools and demos, all conducted via Scheck Hillel’s instructional platform.

“We want to show our utmost appreciation,” said Annie and Jimmy Benarroch, Scheck Hillel parents. “We are in complete admiration of how quickly the school transformed to an online system and how, within a few hours all of our children were back into their routines.”

“Teachers have built out extensive class pages with resources for each course including video links, online labs, online assessments, daily calendars to find learning activities, and extra practice for learning. Virtual office hours are offered and teachers connect through email with students throughout each day to help with specific questions. Additionally, supplemental learning opportunities are offered as a way to increase learning beyond the classroom and build even stronger relationships,” said Nikki Gutierrez, a Scheck Hillel Middle School Science teacher. “Just today I hosted a discussion on the plants and animals of Florida where we learned about nature around us. Not only was it educational, but it was an opportunity to meet each other's pets and engage in a way that helps us get to know one another.”

Reflecting the school’s mission, Scheck Hillel’s Middle School Chessed (Kindness) Coordinator, Talia Eisenberger, continues to work with students to share kindness to the community. Throughout the year, students regularly visit nursing homes and the school intends to maintain these connections and lessons in caring for others through technology, lending Apple iPads and reaching out to residences north of South Florida. Now students can virtually visit nursing home residents conducting FaceTime chats, sending pre-recorded messages and virtually performing music via the schools’ band and orchestra.

Hundreds of Community Members Gather for Virtual Bar-Mitzvah

CASE Awards North Miami Beach, Florida – Nearly 300 people virtually joined Scheck Hillel Community School student Benjamin Winterman ‘25 in celebration of his Bar-Mitzvah on March 19. The ceremony was transmitted live through his school’s Zoom account, as well as Instagram and Facebook, so people all over the world could watch and congratulate him on this important day.

Scheck Hillel is Benjamin's second home, as it is his mom’s alma mater and his sisters are students there along with him. When the Coronavirus outbreak closed campus, the Winterman family decided to host Benjamin's Bar Mitzvah virtually, using the school's technology platform so their loved ones and Benjamin’s friends could be part of this important family milestone.

"Scheck Hillel is so much more than an academic institution. We are a community. And we enjoy and value our relationships," said Josh Meisels, Director of Scheck Hillel's Middle School. “We were all very excited to be able to be with him for this important celebration.”

Daniel Winterman, Benjamin’s father, thanked everyone for being there - virtually - by their side.. He congratulated his son and thanked his wife: “the example of how the strongest and purest force is always love.”

“The Torah always brought us - the Jewish People - together as the pillar of our faith and the binding law of our identity and community,” Cindy Winterman, Benjamin’s mother said. She also described the morning as a time when her son could be an example and light for all the community.
