This year marks the 36th anniversary of MJDS, our double chai. To celebrate this joyous milestone, one of the many things we are doing at MJDS is presenting an e-series of narratives told in the first person by different voices of our MJDS community. Parents, teachers, alumni, alumni-parents, students and friends share how MJDS has made an impact on their lives and their Jewish identities. This week’s featured story is especially exciting as it is told by a current MJDS eighth grader, Sophia Edelstein. Her eloquence, confidence and self awareness of who she is both as an individual and as a Jew is the wonder we aspire to all our students. Read her story here.
