Graduation 2016 / 5776
Rabbi Usher Klein, Founder of Mesivta Birkas Yitzchok, Honored with the 2012 Jewish Educator Award.
“For incoming students at Mesivta Birkas Yitzchok, the opportunity to anchor a high school career with Rabbi Usher Klein as the ninth-grade rebbe is a primary reason for the school’s waiting list from a variety of yeshivas. As Milken Family Foundation Executive Vice President Richard Sandler told students, “We can only make a difference in this world — as our ancestors made a difference in this world — is if we are educated and we learn.” In presenting the $15,000 honor to Rabbi Klein, the BJE and Milken Family Foundation gave public affirmation that this is happening for young people under Rabbi Klein’s watch.”
