AMIT’S ANNUAL DAY OF LEARNING FOR WOMEN TO FEATURE KEYNOTE SPEAKER DR. SHOSHANA POUPKO
Cedarhurst, New York – AMIT is holding its annual Yom Iyun, a day of learning for women and by women on Wednesday, July 26, 2017, at 9:30 a.m.
The event will feature keynote speaker Dr. Shoshana Poupko, dean of students for the Ma'ayanot Yeshiva High School for Girls, in Teaneck, who will be giving a talk on “Me vs. We — Can We Sustain Both in Today’s World?” Poupko is a mehanekhet (advisor) for 10th grade and a teacher of Jewish Philosophy and Bible. Dr. Poupko has an Ed.D. in Educational Administration, as well as a M.S. in Secondary Education from Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration at Yeshiva University.
“The annual Yom Iyun is truly a ‘happening,’ said Mimi Mehlman, the event chairwoman for the past 18 years. “We began as an educational group with many prominent keynote speakers in Lido Beach and have grown exponentially over the years. Our Yom Iyun has motivated hundreds of women to come together to learn, as a chabura, many valued and insightful lessons from our Torah and beyond.”
As a Jewish educator, Dr. Poupko’s experience and insight fits well with the mission of AMIT to provide cutting-edge education to Israeli children throughout Israel, many of whom live in the periphery and come from disadvantaged homes.
The Yom Iyun will take place at Sephardic Temple, 775 Branch Boulevard, Cedarhurst, New York, from 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.
