Schechter’s dual curriculum provided me with both the skills to excel in a diverse set of subjects at Cornell and Yale, and a sense of purpose and identity that is unique to the ruach of the Schechter experience. The ability to think critically, which I first developed at Schechter, has also become invaluable to me as a young lawyer. But most of all, I’m grateful for the Schechter community. My teachers have become mentors, and my friends have become family. It is a blessing to have them by my side at each new stage of life.
