Last night the Class of 2021 formally completed their Bernard Zell education when they walked across the bima to receive their diplomas, officially becoming alumni. Each of the 54 graduates had an opportunity to stand behind the podium and reflect on a meaningful moment in their school careers and also benefited from the parting wisdom of Head of School, Gary Weisserman, Head of Middle School, Stephanie Bloom, Board Chair, Debbi Cooper, Director of Jewish Learning, Rachel Jury, and Senior Rabbi of Anshe Emet Synagogue, Rabbi Michael Siegel.
These outstanding young men and women will now head off to begin their high school careers at the following institutions throughout the Chicagoland area:
DePaul College Prep
Francis W. Parker School
Jones College Prep
Lake View High School
La Lumiere School
Lane Tech College Prep High School

We wish the entire Class of 2021 a restful summer and a meaningful beginning to their high school careers. Click below to watch last night’s graduation ceremony in its entirety.
