Twenty poised and accomplished graduates from Temima, The Richard and Jean Katz High School for girls, lined the stage last week at Congregation Beth Jacob, each holding a single rose at an evening of appreciation for milestones earned.
After the message by Rabbi Doniel Pransky of Atlanta Scholars Kollel and a tribute to dedicated longtime board member Diana Cohen by board member David Jaffe, Cohen gave a moving tribute response on the value of a Temima education.
Then the standing-room-only audience was treated to the graduates sharing their knowledge and insights. With the presentation of diplomas, Principal Miriam Feldman gave an emotional talk about the girls’ vision and accomplishments, with an inspirational message that encapsulated the essence of each girl.
Since Temima High School began, it has graduated 243 girls: 97 percent pursue a year of study in Israel, 99 percent enroll in college and 86 percent seek advanced degrees.
Graduates include: Batsheva Aminov, Yocheved Boroosan, Adina Esral, Rachelli Fisch, Ora Fischer, Liba Garfinkel, Elisheva Goldberger, Devorah Greenberg, Eliana Herscovici, Ariel Kaminetzky, Simcha Freida Kayser, Miriam Yael Leff, Yael Nurielle Lovett, Miriam Munk, Sarahle Pearlman, Leeba Pransky, Rochel Dina Shteierman, Rivky Stein, Rachel Tress and Ariella Wolf.
