Dr. Richard Cuenca’s Friday Letter: Welcome to Our 44th Year!

Dr. Richard Cuenca’s Friday Letter: Welcome to Our 44th Year!

It was over four decades ago that a small group of thoughtful and committed Jewish parents convened to discuss the opening of a new Jewish day school. They were driven by a passion for educating their children. They wanted the very best math, science, history, and language arts instruction for their children, but they also wanted much more — a school that embodied at its core the Torah values and teachings that have served the Jewish people for generations. On Wednesday, August, 23, 2017, forty-four years from our school’s humble beginnings, the David Posnack Jewish Day School will again open its doors with pride to welcome over 700 children and 160 faculty and staff.

As Purim approaches and we celebrate together the joy of the holiday, I want to share a remarkable story of hope and optimism. Towards the end of last week, my office started receiving letters of support – lots of them! The letters were handwritten and more and more arrived each day. They were from strangers who probably had never even heard of the Posnack School before two weeks ago.

Dr. Richard Cuenca’s Passover Letter: Our Most Precious Responsibility

Not to make parents feel even worse, but studies have shown that parental stress weakens children’s brains, depletes their immune systems, increases their risk of obesity, mental illness, diabetes, allergies, and even tooth decay. Wow! Bringing stress home from the office has its consequences. Thankfully there is something we can do for our children that provides opportunities for quality stress-free time.
