We Salute the Moskowitz Family, honored as the Committee of 100’s 2019 ‘Family of the Year’
Each year, Temple Beth Am is proud to recognize an outstanding family of volunteers. Congratulations to the Moskowitz Family — Jessica, Adam, Serafina, Michael and Samantha — who were honored on March 10, 2019 as recipients of the Committee of 100’s 2019 “Family of the Year” Award, for their continued participation in our Temple community and their ongoing commitment to congregational leadership.
Jessica‘s TBAM journey began almost a decade ago in the Tot Shabbat and Mommy and Me programs, with the oldest of her three Temple Beth Am Day School students Serafina. She has been involved as a lay leader in the Temple Beth Am Day School for several years, including being a room parent, and for two years was Co-Chair of the Day School Annual Auction (2017 and 2018). Jessica is a member of the Day School Board, and is now Co-President of PATIO (Parent and Teacher Involvement Organization). She previously chaired the Grandparents & Special Friends Day Committee, served as Vice President of the Elementary School on the PATIO Board and is currently enrolled in Temple Beth Am’s Atideynu leadership training program.
Adam, founding partner of The Moskowitz Law Firm, is in his 26th year on the faculty at the University of Miami School of Law teaching Class Action Litigation, and donates his salary back to the school for student scholarships. He helped establish the annual Class Action Forum at the UM School of Law. Last year, Adam helped organize a new group of parent volunteers to launch the inaugural Day School Chanukah Games on December 21, 2018 — watch video. All 230 elementary school students participated in 12 physical and mental activities, and Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Adam is active in the Alexander Muss High School in Israel program, having been a student and then a Madrich (counselor). He is passionate about Israel and works tirelessly in behalf of AIPAC in Washington, DC. A member of the “Beyond the Curve” Capital Campaign Committee, he proudly coaches his daughter’s 3rd grade Beth Am Basketball League team and is a frequent guest reader in his childrens’ classrooms.
Serafina (pictured at right) is a third grader at Temple Beth Am Day School where she began her studies in Early Childhood in Junior Pre-Nursery. She enjoys art, tennis, Beth Am Basketball League, spending time with her friends and setting out on her own path in life.
Michael, a first grader at Temple Beth Am Day School who also began here in the Early Childhood, also loves playing tennis at Coral Oaks, basketball and spending time with friends and family in Miami and North Carolina.
In Fall 2019, Samantha, a Pre-K student, will find her way across the quad to Kindergarten. Eager to learn to read and write, her spunky personality comes shining through, especially during After School U’s Hip Hop.
