Committed to helping our children excel in academic studies and social skills.
This year’s event will honor Marian and Gabriel Braun with the Rabbi Jack Segal Excellence in Education Award and Barbara and Ron Brounes with the Robin and Josh Berry Volunteer Award. Please join us, and our BYDS family, in thanking our honorees by attending this special night. Your support will ensure that BYDS students will continue to graduate from our school with a love of learning and a devotion to Jewish values, all thanks to our incredible faculty and staff.
Long-time Beth Yeshurun supporters, alumni parents, and current BYDS grandparents, Marian and Gabriel Braun will be honored with the Rabbi Jack Segal Excellence in Education Award. This honor is given to individuals who have shown overwhelming commitment to the BYDS mission and who continue to work hard on behalf of our school. The Brauns have been intensely dedicated to their service towards Jewish education for more than 40 years supporting BYDS and The Emery/Weiner School. Marian and Gaby are particularly passionate about Jewish youth and the importance of them understanding their heritage. They believe very strongly in educating our children with that knowledge so their Jewish identities and connections to the State of Israel are solidified.
Barbara and Ron Brounes will be the well-deserved recipients of the Robin and Joshua Berry Volunteer Award, which recognizes individuals for their ongoing demonstration of initiative, leadership, responsibility, and involvement in school-related activities. The Brouneses became highly engaged as BYDS volunteers the moment they enrolled their eldest daughter (now an alumna herself), by chairing numerous school events and campaigns. As an alumnus, Ron’s dedication to BYDS is second nature, both as a parent and Board Member, while Barbara serves an advisory role assisting the school in all legal matters.
Please join us and our BYDS family in celebrating our honorees and our 70th anniversary on this special evening. Your generous contribution will ensure that BYDS students will continue on their paths of academic excellence with a love for learning and a devotion to Jewish values.
