73rd Anniversary Dinner

Sara and Danny Berger are the proud parents of Dylan (’20), Caroline (’22) and Alexander (’25).  Sara and Danny have been active members of the WDS community for over ten years. Danny has been on the Board of Trustees and Sara has chaired the Liaison Committee and Alumni Committee and has been involved in many PTA and school-wide events.  Sara and Danny are also active in the Young Israel of Scarsdale, having both served on the Board of Directors. They feel so grateful to the Westchester Day School administration and faculty for nurturing and educating their children through the years.
 
Vivian and Stan Bernstein, both WDS alumni, are themselves proud parents of four WDS alumni (our honoree Michelle ('97), Jamie ('00), Jesse ('04) and Nicole ('08), and grandparents of WDS students Jack ('28) (future school president), Gila ('30) (future principal) and future student Annie ('32) (probably will succeed Jack as president).
 
Vivian chaired several WDS dinners and was involved in countless PTA and other school activities.  She founded and was the first co-president of the Young Israel of New Rochelle Women’s League.  Stan served for over 20 years on the School’s Executive Board as Executive/Administrative Vice President and simultaneously chaired the Scholarship Committee that entire time.  He assisted the school in numerous legal issues over the decades, including spearheading its successful five-year litigation against the Village of Mamaroneck which yielded a $4.75 million recovery for WDS.  He now serves as Vice President of the Young Israel of New Rochelle.
 
Viv, a former teacher and interior designer, is an avid figure skater, often seen helping WDS students skate at Hommocks Ice Rink.  Stan is a founding partner of Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a plaintiffs litigation law firm.
 
Michelle ('97) and Justin Goldberg are the proud parents of Jack ('28), Gila ('30) and Annie ('32). Michelle and Justin met while both attending Westchester Hebrew High School. Michelle began attending Westchester Day School in Kindergarten and now just a few years later, her children now roam the same WDS halls.

Justin has been an integral part of numerous WDS golf outings which have have been some of the most successful events. He also loves volunteering as a Class Dad, travelling with the children on field trips.
Michelle is currently on the Board of Trustees and has served on many committees at WDS including the Recruitment Committee.
Both Michelle and Justin strongly believes in the value of a WDS education. 

Justin works in real estate and Michelle is an attorney and works as an Assistant District Attorney in Westchester. 
 
Jana ('90) and Gadi Romm are the proud parents of Beni ('17), Ilan ('21) and Ori ('24).  As a graduate of WDS, Jana was thrilled to have her kids return to her alma mater under the tutelage of her mother, Morah Susan Chasan (‘17).
Jana was a member of the mission statement committee, the alumni committee, and has been a volunteer for numerous activities throughout the years.  Most recently she has been privileged to work with a group of amazing physicians as chair of the medical committee, helping our children return safely to school.  Jana is a pediatrician at North Central Bronx Hospital.
As an active member of the technology committee, Gadi was integral in bringing the STEM lab to WDS and drafting the Technology in Education roadmap. Gadi has been gabbai and board member of the Hebrew Institute of White Plains for the past 13 years.  He is a Director of Engineering at the Bank of New York Mellon and can often be found on the carpool line at WDS.
Andrew Slater grew up in Westport, CT and now lives in Greenwich, CT. He grew up one of five boys and the younger of twins (may his twin brother’s memory be a blessing). After college, he worked in the family business for many years. He is married to Wynn McDaniel Slater, and they have two lovely children: Victoria and William. His change of career happened in the early 2000s, when he discovered his love of teaching as he was helping out a friend who taught chess to first and second graders. The impact was instant, and, lucky for us, he decided to pursue a master's degree in teaching, and feels fortunate to have been discovered by Rabbi Einzig in 2007. He has taught at WDS for fourteen years and has a passion for golf, swimming, biking and healthy living. He is often seen playing Frisbee or bocce ball with his students, or digging up a time capsule with the 8th graders who made it and buried it with him while they were in 4th. Andrew tells me that he loves getting up each day to teach at WDS and cherishes the community that has embraced him.
