An “erev tov” – good evening – for Carmel Academy

Honorees Kevin Sprecher and Debbie Doniger

Carmel Academy honoree Eric Goldschmidt with his daughters Lisa Daniel of Stamford and Jenna Weinberg of New York City.

More than 350 supporters of Carmel Academy gathered at Tamarack Country Club in Greenwich on March 11 for the school’s annual Erev Tov celebration, honoring two area couples, Eric and Pam Goldschmidt, and Debbie Doniger and Kevin Sprecher.
“Our honorees represent the best of Carmel’s lay leadership – as we learn from the Torah – it is not just about what they do or accomplish, but the manner in which they do it and the fact that their work will impact generations to come,” said Head of School Nora Anderson to those in attendance.
Anderson took the opportunity to thank the Greenwich Jewish Federation for its ongoing commitment to Carmel. “Your support is not only financial,” she said. “You have become our true partners in the education of the future leaders of the Jewish people.”
Noting that Carmel received accreditation this year by the Connecticut Association of Independent Schools (CAIS), school president David Messer said, “The head of the CAIS evaluation committee told me it was virtually unprecedented for a school in its first accreditation process to get such uniform high rankings. The accreditation report is a source of great pride for our school and a validation of what we have accomplished in designing our own unique excellence in Jewish private school education.”
The festivities also included a silent auction and live auction led by comedian and Carmel parent Joel Chasnoff.
