SPRINGFIELD – Heritage Academy’s annual fundraiser, “A Celebration of Our Heritage” honoring Ann and Herb Berezin and Susan and Marc Goldman, will be held on Sunday, June 5 at 5:30 p.m. at Temple Beth El in Springfield.

Herb and Ann Berezin have a strong commitment to day school education and Jewish communal life. Herb was one of the major donors to the school’s new building when it was established on the Jewish Community Campus in Longmeadow. When he married Ann, they continued their support for Heritage, sending all five of their now grown children to the school. Ann began volunteering at Heritage as the co-chair of the Annual Dinner. She served for over 15 years on the school’s Board of Directors, and during that time held various positions including Finance Chair, Personnel Chair and President. Herb and Ann are among the founders of the Hebrew High School of New England. Herb founded Mount Holyoke Management, a real estate company that owns and manages residential and commercial properties throughout New England, and Ann works for Aspen Square Management in West Springfield.
Tickets for the event are available at Heritage Academy, 594 Converse Street, Longmeadow. For more information, contact the school at (413) 567-1517.
