Posted by Becky Morhaim on 12/11/2019 @ 03:13 PM
North Miami Beach, Florida – Scheck Hillel Community School senior Orli Algranatti was recognized by the Heisman Trophy Trust as a 2019 Heisman High School Scholarship School Winner.
Orli plays three varsity sports for Scheck Hillel: tennis, volleyball and basketball. She is a leader who exemplifies the tenets of Scheck Hillel’s educational philosophy.
“When Coach Lyon sent me the nomination, my whole world turned upside down because I hadn't realized I was so involved,” Orli said. “I play so many sports, and I dedicated my whole life to sports and the school! I am very excited for this recognition.”
The 2020 senior also thrives academically. She participates in Scheck Hillel’s Dual Enrollment program with Florida International University, earning college credit while in high school. In 2017, she was honored by the Miami Herald for her academic achievement, community service and sports involvement. Through Scheck Hillel’s Experiential Learning Program, Orli interns at Skylake Animal Hospital, where she has immersed herself in the science and art of caring for animals. The aspiring veterinarian is looking to learn as much as possible about the field and develop mentoring relationships before college. Orli is also very active in the community. She volunteers at ACEing Autism, teaching kids with autism how to play tennis, and with Kesher, teaching students how to play basketball.
The prestigious Heisman High School Scholarship recognizes outstanding scholar-athletes who understand that the most important victories not only happen on the field, but in their schools and communities. These remarkable young leaders set the example and make a game-changing difference every day, paving the way to greatness for everyone around them.

Martin Simmonds (Tim Roth) has been haunted throughout his life by the mysterious disappearance of his “brother” and extraordinary best friend, a Polish Jewish virtuoso violinist, Dovidl Rapaport, who vanished shortly before the 1951 London debut concert that would have launched his brilliant career. Thirty-five years later, Martin discovers that Dovidl (Clive Owen) may still be alive, and sets out on an obsessive intercontinental search to find him and learn why he left.
Almost four decades later, Martin follows the clues that lead him ever closer to his friend, until he learns the meaning of ‘The Song of Names,’ a profoundly moving piece of music that holds the answer to why his brother vanished so suddenly from his life.
From director François Girard ("The Red Violin") and producer Robert Lantos ("Eastern Promises," "Being Julia") comes a film Rabbi David Wolpe calls "heartbreaking and heart-healing at the same time."
