An Evening in Shushan

Join Ezra Academy for a festive Evening in Shushan while celebrating Alumna Rachel Scolnic Dobin, ‘95.

On Saturday, March 4, at 7:00 p.m., Ezra Academy will host an exotic evening of Purim games, food and drink. The event will also honor the 2017 Alumni Hall of Fame Inductee Rachel Scolnic Dobin, MSW, class of ‘95. Dobin has served as Program Director of Jewish Family Service of Greater New Haven and as the Coordinator of the Social Outreach Service Program for the last six years. Dobin has made a very positive impact on the lives of the most vulnerable and under served families and individuals in the Greater New Haven community. She has helped families through many forms of crisis, including domestic violence, unemployment, substance abuse, mental illness, family loss, homelessness, and families in desperate need of heat for their homes during the winter. Dobin has introduced new programs such as Operation Fuel, which helps individuals get a one-time fuel grant. She exhibits grace patience, and humor with every client, and treats them with dignity, caring and compassion.

Dobin is proud to be a current Ezra Academy parent of Alexander (‘21), and Avi (‘23) and future student, Leah. Dobin continues to be a vital member of the Jewish New Haven Community by implementing the values and education that she received at Ezra Academy.

Proceeds from the event directly support scholarship assistance as well as curricular and programmatic needs at Ezra Academy. Save the date and join Ezra Academy on March 4. For more information and to register, visit
