Spotlight on Danielle Rose

Mazel Tov to  Danielle Rose, the first ever Teen of the Month!

Danielle worked very hard to establish a pilot Hebrew Language Program at Vernon Hills High School in partnership with  The iCenter.

She is very passionate about Jewish learning and for two years has tutored struggling students at  Congregation Or Shalom-Vernon Hills. Danielle is also a participant in the prestigious  Diller Teen Fellowship where she learns leadership skills and deepens connections to Judaism and Israel. She is determined to become a leader, not only in her community and temple, but in the Greater Jewish Community and is always looking for ways to cheerfully volunteer.

Thanks to Sandra Epstein for nominating this fantastic teen!
