On Sunday, November 11, HAFTR High School opened its doors to prospective students and their parents. More than 350 guests filled the building in what was the most successful HAFTR High School open house to date. More than 20 families from other neighborhood schools also attended the event and were introduced to the wonderful experiences that their children will have at HAFTR High School. Visitors learned about the unique and individualized educational opportunities that HAFTR High School has to offer both in general and Judaic studies.
The day’s program began with speeches from the HAFTR High School principals, Ms. Naomi Lippman and Rabbi Gedaliah Oppen, in addition to a senior speaker, Rebecca Jedwab, and Justin Glickman, a freshman speaker. There was standing room only in the auditorium as guests listened to the presenters and watched a unique video presentation which highlighted the institution.
Parents spent the remainder of the morning sitting in on four model lessons, while students were sent on a scavenger hunt that gave them the opportunity to explore the school and interact with students and faculty members. HAFTR looks forward to welcoming all of these new families to the HAFTR High School community.
