Dr. Deborah Parks Principal at Harkham Gaon

BJE Builder Dr. Debora Parks - Harkham GAON

Mar 09, 2021

For Dr. Debora Parks, being a leader of a small day school means wearing many different hats. Dr. Parks indeed does that, as she is a flexible, dynamic leader, one who assumes a variety of roles in her school. She is always giving of her expertise, thoughts, and time, constantly adapting to an ever-changing environment, and, thus, sustaining Harkham-GAON Academy (HGA) with never-ending positive energy. Harkham-GAON Academy is grateful to Dr. Parks for being instrumental in building what Rabbi Moises Benzaquen dreamed of: an affordable, inclusive, modern Orthodox Jewish day school. 

Why Jewish Education?

Mar 09, 2021

Recently, I read a book co-authored by two very distinguished Jewish educators, Dr. Bruce Powell and Dr. Ron Wolfson, titled: Raising A+ Human Beings.  In his preface to this very worthwhile and accessible work, Rabbi Ed Feinstein recounts the following:
“I remember my first Parents Night as a head of school: ‘Your job is to get my kid into a good college!’ a parent informed me.  ‘All we ask is that you give our kids the tools to be successful!’ offered another.”

By integrating Jewish values, the history of the Torah, and the modern world, our students are focused and well-rounded individuals who can make justice-minded and socially conscious decisions.
