The Bureau of Jewish Education’s Phoenix High School of Jewish Studies, widely known as “Hebrew High,” celebrated its 2013 graduation program May 7 at Har Zion Congregation. Sixteen graduates received diplomas for completing the four-year program and 11 students received certificates in recognition of taking courses at the school. Sheryl Bronkesh presented the Bronia and Sam Bronkesh Jewish Spirit Prize award to Jackson Fein, first-place winner, and Elai-na Stein-gard, second place. Winners of the Bobbi Kurn Memorial Essay Award were Lior Attias, Megan Kotzin, Elaina Steingard, Jake Zimmerman and Ziggy Klemow. Daniel Pressman was presented with Jewish Theological Seminary’s Ahavat Torah Award for his commitment to excellence in leadership, service and Judaic studies. The theme for this year’s program was “Who Am I? Who Will I Be?” 

Middle schoolers from the Phoenix Hebrew Academy swept the Engineering Division at the Maricopa County Science Fair. Winners, in order of ranking, were Nathan Munarov, Mushka Blotner, Gabriel Lewis, Rafael Almoslino and Enya Smilovic.
