“As parents, we chose Golda Och Academy for its outstanding curriculum and it has instilled in our children, and all of our students, strong Jewish values and a love of Israel,” he said.

For the past 12 years, Michele Landau has dedicated herself to Golda Och Academy and has been instrumental in the its success, according to the school. She also took on a leadership role as Parents Association president of the Lower School in 2006 and has since grown her leadership portfolio.

In 2009, Michele co-chaired the Great Auction and in 2010 became the co-chair of the Building on Tradition Campaign, which was successfully completed in 2015. As co-chair of this fundraising effort, Michele, along with the rest of the Building on Tradition team, was charged with meeting the $15-million challenge from the Och family. Her work helped secure the financial stability of the school.

“We are so pleased to be honored at the Golda Och Academy Spring Gala,” said Michele. “Providing Rebecca, Ally and Ethan with a Golda Och Academy education is the most valuable gift that we could ever give them.”

Head of School Adam Shapiro said, “Michele and Jeff Landau are incredible leaders and role models for our entire community. We are thrilled to be able to honor them at our gala and thank them for their tireless efforts on behalf of our school and students.”
