Empowering the Future
New York, New York
The Ramaz School—Honoring Tradition, Empowering the Future commemorates the school’s seventy-fifth anniversary, and tells the story of Ramaz from its beginning. In 1937, Rabbi Joseph H. Lookstein founded the Ramaz Academy on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, naming it for Rabbi Moses Zevulun Margolies (the “RaMaZ”), spiritual leader of Congregation Kehillath Jeshurun (KJ). The school started with six students—including its future principal, Haskel Lookstein—and two teachers who met in the KJ social hall. Seventy-five years later, Ramaz has over a thousand students and three hundred faculty and staff in three buildings. It is known as the pre-eminent—and most influential—Modern Orthodox day school in the country.
