At HAFTR’s 37th annual dinner, held on March 21, the school paid tribute to Guests of Honor Drs. Alissa and David Hersh (David is a class of 1994 alum); Hakarat HaTov Awardee Mr. Ari Solomon (Ari is a HAFTR parent and Hillel Day Camp director); and Educator of the Year Rabbi Yisroel Moshe Siff (a HAFTR faculty member for more than 25 years).
