Welcome to the NYSOE Alumni Association page. I’m Rena Fraade, the Chairperson of our Alumni Association. I graduated from the NYSOE in 2009 and currently serve as the Educator at Larchmont Temple. My goal as chair is to help our alumni stay connected or reconnect with the College-Institute and classmates, take advantage for HUC-JIR learning opportunities, and meet some of the wonderful current students.
This is just a small sampling of what our Leadership Team is working on now. There are lots of ways for you to get involved in the work of our Alumni Association and we are eager to have you join us! Please let me know if you would like more information about any of our initiatives. If you are interested in getting involved, have questions, or just want to say hi, please contact me. I'm always interested in hearing your comments and thoughts!
With much gratitude for this opportunity,
Rena Fraade, MAJCS, RJE
