Women’s Philanthropy sees innovative learning firsthand at new Meyer Academy building
The new home of Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy is already becoming an epicenter of community building.
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County's Women’s Philanthropy held its board of directors meeting Monday, January 12 at the Melvin J. & Claire Levine Center for Jewish Learning. The center houses Meyer Academy, a partner agency of Federation, now in its first school year at the new location on Hood Road in Palm Beach Gardens.
The 30 women who attended were welcomed by Meyer Academy Head of School, Nehemia “Nammie” Ichilov, who highlighted the importance of women’s philanthropic support in our community.
The women also spent time in kindergarten classrooms while touring the state-of-the-art school, witnessing firsthand Meyer Academy’s innovative education techniques. A group of eighth grade students invited the board members to write a note or prayer on a piece of paper and to deposit it into the school’s replica Western Wall. The notes will be collected by the students and taken to the Kotel in Jerusalem on their class trip to Israel this spring.
