Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School (CESJDS) Head of School Rabbi Mitchel Malkus and Director of Development Sharon Metro Roll attended the CASE/NAIS Conference where they took part in the presentation of the John R. Chandler Award to the Robert P. and Arlene R. Kogod Family Foundation. This award recognizes the long-term support of a corporation or foundation toward the advancement of independent schools.
CESJDS and the Sidwell Friends School co-nominated the Kogod Family Foundation for this award. Robert Kogod and his son Stuart Kogod were at the ceremony to receive the award. Representatives from the San Francisco Friends School and the SEED Foundation, two other educational institutions the Kogod Family Foundation supports, were also in attendance.
