Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence!
Next year marks the start of a major milestone for Alice and Nahum Lainer School (formerly called Sinai Akiba Academy): our 50thAnniversary! We are excited to organize celebrations from March 2018 through June 2019, and it is shaping up to be an unforgettable experience for students, alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty and staff, and families of all ages. After all, it’s not every day that one gets to commemorate half a century of excellence in Jewish education.
Help us make this momentous occasion one for the history books. Here are the ways to get involved:
- Join the party! Our 50th Anniversary Gala on Sunday, March 11 at the California Science Center will be the event of the year! Sponsorships and tickets are now available by clicking here. All revenue from ticket sales and sponsorships will directly impact our students and teachers. For more information, contact Alexandra Kadoche, Development Director.
- Share YOUR stories. We invite current and former students, parents, and staff to share their favorite memories and reflect on their hopes for Alice and Nahum Lainer School’s future. Email Shoshana Farberov, historian.
- Attention Alumni: We are so excited to introduce our new initiative: #StartedatSinai. We are asking our incredible alumni to share your stories and best memories in a 30-second video filmed on your smartphone to be shared at our 50th Anniversary Gala on March 11, and our 50th Anniversary microsite to be launched in the spring!
- Participate in the 50th Anniversary Campaign and continue to build excellence at our School through a meaningful donation. Please contact Danny Spiegel, Advancement Director at or 310-481-3285 for more information.
