More than 400 people joined in honoring Rabbi Jim and Nancy Rosen at the Solomon Schechter Day School (SSDS) Spring Scholarship Event, held in May at the University of Hartford’s Millard Auditorium. “It is wonderful to honor people like the Rosens who have made an enormous impact on the Solomon Schechter Day School and the community at large.” Said Head of School Rabbi Elliot Goldberg in presenting the Rosens with the school’s Gerald and Paula Steinberg Community Service Award. The festive evening was highlighted by a performance of the off-Broadway smash hit “A Jew Grows in Brooklyn,” starring Jake Ehrenreich who wrote and produced the one-man show. According to the school’s Director of Development Jayne Rotter, the event raised $230,000 for the school’s scholarship fund.
