STAMFORD—Miriam Sperber has been appointed Director of Admissions of Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy in Stamford, it was announced recently by Head of School Jacqueline Herman.
Sperber takes over as admissions director at the pre-K through grade 12 school from Denise Rafailov who recently relocated with her family to New Jersey.
“We’re so pleased to welcome Miriam to our Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy family,” noted Herman in announcing Miriam Sperber’s appointment. “Her warmth and dynamism, her breadth of experience working one-on-one with people from all walks of life, and her commitment to the growth of the Stamford Jewish community make her the perfect person to introduce young families to all Bi-Cultural has to offer.”
A native of Montreal, Canada, Miriam Sperber is a graduate of Yeshiva University’s Stern College, where she received a BA in Fashion Design in a joint program with the Fashion Institute of Technology. Prior to joining Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy, she provided freelance interior and website design services, as well as creative marketing services, for several Connecticut businesses and non-profits.
Since moving to Stamford seven years ago, Sperber and her husband, David —
the parents of two young children, David, 2 1/2, and Elle, 1 — have become integral parts of the Jewish community— which,
she says, makes her especially eager to begin work at Bi-Cultural.
“Since my husband and I moved to the community we have been welcomed with such warmth. Stamford has become the place that we call home,” says Sperber. “That’s why I am thrilled to be joining the Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy family and excited to help grow and give back to the community that has given so much to me.”
The community is invited to meet Miriam Sperber, and learn more about Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy, at the school’s Open House on Sunday, November 3. A morning session will be held for families of pre-K, lower and middle school students; and an afternoon session will be held for high school students and their parents. The Open House will be held on the BCHA campus, 2186 High Ridge Road in North Stamford. For more information, contact Miriam Sperber at (203) 329-2186 x1310 or email@example.com.
