R.WILLIAM STRIAR SERVICE AWARD: ELAINE REIMAN
A former educator herself, Elaine Reiman's passion for Jewish education has inspired her volunteer work for SHAS. As a grandparent of three SHAS graduates (Zachary, Jason and Noah), Elaine has been involved as a substitute teacher, an educational mentor, a fundraiser, letter-writer and all around supporter. Elaine and her husband, Mickey reside in Sharon near her daughter and son in law.
R.WILLIAM STRIAR SERVICE AWARD: EVELYN STRAMER
Evelyn Stramer’s journey with SHAS began when her oldest grandson, Sammy Marcus (6th grade), started school and continued with Sammy's siblings Maya (3rd grade) and Benny (Gan-Aleph). To the students, she is known as Bubby. Evelyn brightens everyone’s day with her contagious smile at the 3:15 pickup and when she volunteers at the school. Beyond her relationship with the students, she has spent countless hours fundraising, writing correspondence, and cheerleading on behalf of SHAS. Evelyn and her husband Chaim reside in Sharon across the street from her beloved grandchildren.
Rising Young Leader: Dahlia Weinberg
Dahlia Weinberg has worked tirelessly on almost every major school fundraiser since her children Yardena (Gan Aleph), and Meirav (N/PK) started at SHAS (and Ayelet (future N/PK) will be joining in the fall). In addition to running the family concerts in 2016 and 2017, Dahlia co-chaired the hugely successful brick campaign last year and served on the SHAS Committee of Trustees. She is currently chair of the newly formed Marketing Committee. She has also volunteered for countless SHAS projects such as Rosh Chodesh Pizza and being a parent ambassador. We look forward to many more years of her partnership with the school. Dahlia's husband Yoni grew up in Sharon and his parents still live in his childhood home.
EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING AWARD: LESLEE ROTMAN
Morah Leslee Rotman recently retired after teaching at SHAS for 20 years. During those years she nurtured and loved over 300 students. Leslee transformed the lives of her students with her boundless energy, unfailing kindness and passion for education. Leslee's desire to see every child succeed, feel important, valued, and be infused with a love of learning is evident in her classroom and in the students she has taught. When not teaching at SHAS, one could often find her working with children at the Sharon Public Library.
