Members of the Friedman family related to the collection are Rachel and David Friedman (present in school photographs), Bob Friedman (ex-brother-in-law to Abe Dunn), and the donor of the materials, Joy L. Friedman.
Featured prominently in the collection, Beth Yeshurun Day School aims to “foster confidence, leadership, a love of learning, and a sense of responsibility in students by honoring individual strengths in an environment dedicated to academic excellence, Jewish teachings, and the continuity of Jewish values,” according to its website. The school both draws on traditional values and innovation, providing not only a place of education for children and their parents, but feeding into a larger, close-knit community committed to nurturing a strong sense of Jewish identity, emotional well-being, and life skills.
