Alumni Welcome

Kadimah provided me with a solid academic foundation and great work ethic, which has served me well in my education and career as a mathematics professor, editor and more. And I’m not the only female mathematics professor to come out of those years at Kadimah (for instance, I also know of Dina Cowen). The years of study of Hebrew and Judaism also helped me both personally and professionally. I’m on the faculty advisory board for the Center for Judaic, Holocaust and Peace studies at school, and in my spare time, I use what I learned at Kadimah to research and preserve information about small Jewish communities that were destroyed in World War II.

We are gathering success stories of Kadimah alumni from the past, to help us grow Kadimah for the future. If you were part of the Kadimah story,  please e-mail us at with a short (1-3 sentence) testimonial about your experience at Kadimah and how it has shaped/influenced your professional career or success, as well as what additional effect it had on your life and your Jewish identity? Please also indicate if you would be willing to have it included here or in other alumni materials. We may also use your contribution on social media or other digital marketing materials.
