The Solomon Schechter Day School of Greater Hartford (SSDS) kicked off its annual Friends of Solomon Schechter (F.O.S.S.) campaign on Thursday, Nov. 1 with the F.O.S.S. Café that had volunteers serving coffee curbside in front of the school to parents and friends. This year, F.O.S.S. highlights three Schechter families who have stepped up to be campaign co-chairs: Shera and David Golder and the their children, Alex and Pauline; Patti and Robert Kessler and their children, Ariel and Jacob; and, Susan and Robert Gold and their children, Stephanie and Rebecca.
“Jewish education is a communal commitment,” says SSDS Development Director Jayne Rotter. “It is through the generosity of our friends and families that we are able to meet the diverse needs of our school community. Tuition only covers three quarters of what it costs to educate each and every child. The FOSS campaign helps makeup the difference.”
