Dear Dr. Vitow,
This past Friday, Dina and I moved from Long Beach to Far Rockaway. For multiple reasons, including taking advantage of the Thanksgiving break, we needed to move over the weekend.
I mentioned to a few students that I was moving and wasn't completely sure how I was going to finish it over the weekend. Without hesitation Avi Nessim and Ethan Ohebshalom said they would be there to help me move. Avi brought his brother Jacob, and Ethan, a real HERO, brought Leor Kordvani, Jacob Setton and Jacob Ijadi.
Thanks to their help, within only a few hours, we finished the bulk of the work on Friday morning. They helped us with all the furniture and boxes. The only thing left for us to do is to unpack our boxes in the new apartment.
I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I would not have been able to move with this much ease, speed and low levels of stress without the help of our Talmidim. I am filled with a feeling of gratitude and thanks towards them as well as pride that I am privileged to be called their Rebbe.
During their vacation and for no direct benefit, when they could have been doing anything else normal teens do, they decided to come and help their Rebbe when he needed it.
Feel free to share this publicly. I think it is a wonderful example of how good and kind our Talmidim can be.
וזכני לגדל בנים ובני בנים חכמים ונבונים אוהבי ה' יראי אלוקים אנשי אמת זרע קודש בה' דבקים ומאירים את העולם בתורה ומעשים טובים ובכל מלאכת עבודת הבורא
"We have the merit of raising and children and grandchildren... Who come close to and serve Hashem and light up the world with Torah and good deeds!"
All the best Dr. Vitow!

Dear Dr. Vitow,
As extremely proud “post” parents of NSHAHS, we must bring to your attention the best move we made when we registered our son at your school.
We decided to transfer our son to NSHAHS, with his TOTAL APPROVAL, and it turned out to be the move that put him on the way to being accepted into all of his College preferences.
As we’re sure you know that in life there are times when one is given a chance to alter his or her direction hoping for the best.
With gratitude to Hashem, you, Dr. Vitow, and NSHAHS - We took that opportunity, and our son “, took the plunge”; never looking back.
He is graduating this year as a Mechanical Engineer with a deep interest to continue his studies and enter into the Aeronautics field.
All this is due to you, Dr.Vitow, your excellent instructors and the school.
May you continue to lead and educate the next generation as well as you did for our son.
Thank you very much.
Hi Dr. Vitow,
I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that sending Joe to North Shore was, hands down, the best decision we have ever made for him. You gave us back the happy, outgoing, son that we had lost while he was in elementary school :(
I am forever grateful that Hashem guided us your way! Thank you!!
Have a great day!

Rabbi Dr. Weinberg,
I went out to eat with my family at a restaurant in the city last night, and soon after a group of about 25 high school students also arrived. We were so disappointed because we anticipated a particularly noisy meal as a result. Moments after they sat down, I heard a boy from one side of the table say, “Shh,” and shortly after another boy from the other side of the table reminded those around him that they were in a restaurant. They maintained proper decorum during the entire meal, which lasted quite a while.
I was so impressed by their conduct, I asked them where they went to school. Hence, I am writing to you to make you aware of the Kiddush Hashem of your students. May you all have a healthy and happy new year, and continued success in the education of your students.

Hi Ms. Rabson!
I have gone through a little more than a week at FIT and it was rocky at first but I'm starting to get into it. I wanted to tell you, thank you really, that your classes have prepared me extremely well for the ones I have here. All those sketches and thumbnails that I complained about, well my teachers ask for at least 15 for each design we do. It's tough but I like the work. My teachers are nice and funny and very realistic; they have so much knowledge and it's so interesting to learn from them.
So thank you for always pushing me to be a better artist and creative thinker and especially for helping me get here. I could never have done it without your guidance.
Maybe I'll come visit one day or send you some of the stuff I make when it's complete, if you would like.
I hope your students this year don't give you a hard time and they better appreciate you!

Dear Dr. Vitow,
I just spent my first week at Brandeis and i wanted to let you know how happy I am. I am beyond prepared for what lies ahead, and I attribute that to you and all of the faculty at NSHAHS.
Shabbat Shalom and Shana Tova,

Dear Dr. Vitow, Mr. Sachs, Mr. Weinberg, and Dr. Runco,
I cannot thank you enough for the opportunity NSHAHS gave me to explore my passion for research, science, and computer science.
These past 10 weeks, I have been working at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as an intern on the Scientific Communications Team in the Office of the Associate Director for Science, within the Office of the Director of CDC.
For the last month, I have been developing a machine learning model to assist the CDC Library with categorizing and indexing articles published by CDC-affiliated authors as well as predicting media impact and relevance of articles to CDC strategic priorities with the ultimate goal of drastically simplifying or completely automating the selection of "top ten weekly publications" to feature on the CDC Library's "Science Clips" website.
Yesterday, I delivered an hour long presentation of my research to the director of the CDC Library, the directors of the Information and Technology Research and Development Department, senior library scientists, senior data and informatics scientists, senior medical officers, senior health scientists, senior epidemiologists, and others.
Long story short, I will be turning my model into a web service application and CDC will be using it each week to select featured articles on their library website.
None of this would have been possible if not for your guidance, encouragement, and mentorship at North Shore. I wanted to reach out and thank you because of that.
I hope that your summer is going well and wish you the best of luck in the future!
Have a great day and thank you again,
Shira Eisenberg, Class of 2016
