We cannot imagine how our lives and those of our children and grandchildren would have been without JKHA/RKYHS.
 
Wow, there are just hundreds upon hundreds of layers of personal and collective history woven throughout all our thirty plus years of experiences: the richness of each of our personal interactions and friendships built with students, faculty, parents, staff, and board members; the challenging classes, busy lunchroom volunteering, endless board meetings, class trip supervision, supporting our teams,
and attending special school programs and events.
 
What is the value of our experience? What price could be placed on the Jewish, Israeli, academic, social encounters that spanned the majority of our lifetimes? Our entire family thanks JKHA/RKYHS
for these priceless, life-changing, character-building imprints on our memories and lives. 
 
This tribute is honestly not at all about us; it's about all the people that make up this very, very special school. It's about how they have collectively created an environment in which to nurture literally thousands of individuals, each with their own gifts and their own challenges. We continually find ourselves with opportunities to become reacquainted in both America and Israel
with all these special Kushner kids, and their beautiful growing families.

Thank you for this opportunity to express our Hakarat HaTov,
Barrie, Simon and our entire family

May you continue to go from strength to strength!  
 
Jodi and Dr. Steve 
We originally became acquainted through our brother, Carey, knowing you as one of the chevra in East Brunswick. Then, two years ago, we got the opportunity to see you in your professional stance when you did an emergency operation on our father that would enable him to use his left leg. Your precise decision-making skills and your expertise as an orthopedic surgeon saved the day. May you continue to have the koach
to give back to the Kushner community for many years to come!
 
Rabbi Richard Kirsch
You are always willing to listen to new ideas and create opportunities for your students. I remember asking whether your high school students could travel to the senior housing in Whippany and then to Care One where students conducted oral histories with senior residents. You were open to that idea and have remained accessible to other ways in which your students can excel and grow. Thank you for taking the time to really listen! May you continue on your path which helps our youth to think about the path in which they are directed.

Rich,

I remember way back when we were dating and you told me that your "dream job" was to be a guidance counselor and an athletic director.
Kudos to Kushner for making that dream come true!

That you work where our kids go to school is very special. They know you are always there, and I know they have you close by
if they need something. That gives me such comfort.

I am so proud of all the amazing contributions you have made to the school and its students, including our own (Tanach teacher, Homelessness Awareness chug, Sports Management club, AIPAC, etc).
Enjoy the well deserved recognition at the Dinner!

I love you very much!!
Jill

Congratulations to Rabbi Kirsch upon receiving this well deserved honor.
You are a very  special person who attends to the needs of every student in such a caring and affectionate way. You treat each student as if he/she was your own child making everyone feel so very special. You do tremendous amounts of Chesed in a quiet and unassuming manner and perform acts of benevolence with warmth and graciousness. Your students look up to you as their role model and follow your footsteps by immersing themselves in doing Mitzvoth and Chesed. Your dedicaiton and commitment to the students are an inspiration to us all.
Thank you for everything that you have done and continue to do for our son David. May Hashem reapy you for everything you do and bring you much Hatzlacha, Bracha and Nachas. May you A'Y have the strength to continue doing all the wonderful things that you do for many years to come.
