Gratz College and the Jewish Community High School find pride in the fact that many Jewish leaders across the country have grown from our classrooms. Here is another excellent example right here in Philadelphia.

As project director of The Collaborative, Danielle Selber (M.A.J.S. 2011) held a successful event for Jewish young adults who watch the polls together on November 6th while raising money for Hurricane Sandy disaster relief. Funds raised will go to Jewish Federation of Atlantic County.

Collaborative members helping with the event were Gavy Alter, a current Gratz College student, and Danielle‚Äôs husband, Michael Slutsky, a Gratz College Jewish Community High School graduate. Gavy is working on her Bachelor degree in Jewish Studies with certificates in Jewish Education and Jewish Early Childhood Education.

As seen through the actions of our students and alumni, the connection between Jewish identity, community awareness and leadership continues to be a core value of Gratz College and the Jewish Community High School.
