“A teacher affects eternity; she can never tell where her influence stops.”

Henry Brooks Adams

Sharon P. Levin Scholarship Fund

Over the past 35 years, as a teacher and Head of School, Sharon has educated, inspired, and influenced thousands of Akiba-Barrack graduates. Her passion for, and commitment to the school, and most importantly to the students, is exemplary and boundless.

As a special tribute to Sharon, Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy, its Board of Directors, and its alumni have created a special Sharon P. Levin Scholarship Fund. The fund will provide needs-based and merit-based scholarship assistance for incoming students. Each year, from this fund, an award will also be given to a graduating senior for high academic achievement and exemplary leadership.

“I am a firm believer in formal Jewish education as the best means to ensure the strength, diversity and vibrancy of our Jewish community. It is my fervent hope that, long after I leave Barrack, every child who wants to experience such an amazing place as
our school will have the opportunity to do so,” said Sharon.

As a school and its community, we feel there is no better way to pay tribute to Sharon.
