Dr. Greg Chamitoff, NASA Astronaut
Jewish NASA Astronaut, Dr. Greg Chamitoff joined Alice and Nahum Lainer School to share his incredible intergalactic journey of 198 days in space.

Beth Kobliner, Personal Finance Authority and Author
We welcomed Beth Kobliner, one of the nation’s leading authorities on personal finance and charitable giving for young people. The event offered our parents relatable advice and valuable tips to help our kids foster a strong work ethic, develop a solid financial future, and learn the importance of tzedakah.
Jeff Kinney, Author of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" Series
Alice and Nahum Lainer School welcomed New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of the wildly popular “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series, Jeff Kinney. Jeff Kinney was as engaging in person as he is in print. He detailed the conception and milestones of his journey, drew cartoon characters from his popular series, and held a question-and-answer session to the kids’ delight. The children were then treated with the rare opportunity to meet and take a picture with the acclaimed author and take home a signed copy of his latest book.
