Chanukah Fundraiser Big Success for Shaloh House

More than 200 parents, grandparents and friends of the students of the Shaloh House Jewish Day School in Brighton attended a pre-Chanukah childrens performance last Sunday at the school and donated $8,000 to create a new security system for the school.

"The children's skits, songs and dances were delightful," Shaloh Executive Director Rabbi Dan Rodkin said. "But the $8,000 the children raised with one afternoons performance was a complete surprise." The donations ranged from $5 to $5,000, and came from parents as well as local Russian businesses.







"I always knew our students were superstars, but who knew they could command $8,000 for one performance?" the Rabbi joked.

"Security is a top issue today for Americans and for Jews in particular," Rabbi Rodkin continued, on a more serious note. "We're extremely happy to be so close to our goal of $9,500 needed for a state of the art security system."

Alex Schrayber, owner of New England Transportation, and Polina Morgovsky, owner of AM-PM Medical Supplies, organized Sundays event. Both Mr. Shrayber and Mrs. Morgovsky are parents of students in the school, and together, they are masterminding Shaloh Houses new fundraising campaign.

Shaloh House offers pre-K to Grade 5 education. Last year, its students took top awards in several New England regional competitions.

"Our students are our treasures. They deserve a top security system," Rabbi Rodkin said
