ACHDUT, the DRS Chapter of the National Honor Society, inducted 42 students into the National Honor Society. The ceremony began with words of welcome from Rabbi Yisroel Kaminetsky, Menahel of DRS, and Dr. Hillel Broder, Principal of General Studies.
Pairs of inductees delivered short vignettes about famous Jewish personalities from Tanach as well as the secular world who made tremendous contributions to society, and who exemplify the middot and characteristics of ACHDUT: character, leadership, scholarship, service, persistence, integrity, compassion, courage, dignity and vision.
Over 200 staff members, parents and relatives attended. An honorary award was delivered to Mrs. Lucia Brown, a longtime social studies teacher at DRS, for her many years of service to our yeshiva.
