Ms. Ravin has been at JDS for 41 years, longer than most teachers have been alive. Throughout this time she has had a profound influence on generations of students, her devotion and passion for teaching has shaped the way we understand our Jewish identities like no other teacher has been able to do. Despite any circumstances that we may be unaware of, it is our firm belief that Ms. Ravin should continue to teach and inspire future students. Without her, our JDS experience would not have been the same. As a passionate educator, an altruistic mentor, and an understanding friend, Ms. Ravin is an irreplaceable figure in our community and should continue to teach for as long as she is able.
