The 50th Anniversary of the pioneering Steinberg Interdisciplinary Residence in Kfar Saba will be celebrated on campus on Thursday, June 8th.
More than 700 of the 2,800 Steinberg alumni worldwide are returning to the school. Each class will get together for a mini-reunion before everyone comes together in the amphitheater for some greetings and short speeches, the debut of a film produced to commemorate the 50th, and live music, with some performances by Steinberg alumni bands.
One highlight of the evening will be the announcement that the grandchildren of Sol and Betty Steinberg, generous donors for whom the school is named, have made a pledge toward the reconstruction of the dining hall. The family gift will be dedicated ‘in memory of Chic Steinberg Lippman”, their mother, who, according to daughter Tamara Bernstein, was a devoted educator, a frequent visitor to the Steinberg Residence and believed that “good food was the cornerstone of a good life.”
Steinberg is a residential campus that enables talented youth, mostly from peripheral towns in northern Israel, to access leading high schools in the affluent cities of Kfar Saba and Ra’anana. It provides talented students, whose home environment prevents them from fully realizing their full academic, personal or social potential, with a real chance for success.
Steinberg was established in 1967 by the Society for Advancement of Education, the Kfar Saba municipality, the Sapir Foundation of the Jewish Agency for Israel, and the Sol and Betty Steinberg family of Los Angeles.
