Last week we announced the generous gift from Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan to Hausner and other Jewish institutions in the Bay Area. This week our Head of School, Rabbi Danny Lehmann, was interviewed for an article in the JWeekly:

“It gives me a lot of hope for the future of philanthropy in the Bay Area. [The grants are] an incredible model of how the resources Silicon Valley has generated can be transformative if applied to the Jewish community. I hope this is the beginning of a growing movement, not only for Mark and Priscilla … but for other tech leaders who have enormous resources. The impact they can have on the Jewish community is profound.”

Our new Head of School, Rabbi Daniel Lehmann, was recently featured in an article in the Jewish News of Northern California. He spoke about his family's connection to the school, his move to the area, and his vision for the future: "...it’s not enough just to be the Jewish day school in the area. We really need to focus our energies on academic distinctiveness, innovation, and creativity at the highest levels of quality."
