LONGMEADOW – Heritage Academy will honor Ze’ev and Meredith Dragon and Rabbi Max and Dalia Davis at this year’s annual scholarship dinner on Thursday, May 22 at 6:30 p.m. at B’nai Torah in Longmeadow.
The scholarship dinner serves as the school’s largest fundraiser and annually honors individuals who contribute in significant and meaningful ways to both Heritage Academy and the Jewish community.
“The Davises and Dragons embody a commitment to both Jewish education and to promoting Jewish values in the community at large,” said Lauren Life of Heritage Academy, a beneficiary agency of the Jewish Federation of Western Mass.
Meredith and Ze’ev Dragon moved to Western Massachusetts five years ago. Since their arrival, they have become deeply involved in the local community. Ze’ev, having just started an information technology company, immediately began volunteering at Heritage Academy, upgrading the technology, network and computer lab. Meredith began working for the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts as the executive director and in that capacity has been an advocate for day school education. The Dragons are the proud parents of two current Heritage Academy students and one Heritage Academy graduate who currently attends Hebrew High School of New England.
“We are so excited to be honoring two terrific couples this year. They both exemplify great role models for our students and community,” said Sharon Cohen, ad journal chairwoman.
The scholarship dinner supports Heritage Academy and the Heritage Academy Scholarship program. The dinner will feature authentic Israeli food with an “Around the World” theme. The evening will also feature live and silent auctions.
“Heritage Academy believes that no Jewish child wanting a Jewish education should be turned away and the annual scholarship dinner helps to make this vision a reality,” Life said.
