Dawn & Jordan Rosenhaus

Dawn and Jordan were both born and raised in New York, which is also where they met. Dawn graduated from The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and then went to work as a designer at Burberry in NYC.  Jordan holds degrees from Columbia University and MIT and is the Chairman of a property technology business based in London.

Dawn and Jordan arrived in South Florida 5 years ago along with their 3 beautiful children, Colette Victoria age 13, Irving Hercz age 11, and Chantal Theresa age 10. Shortly after Colette was enrolled in Kesher and Irving and Chantal in the Nativ program at Scheck Hillel Community School, they became involved and active supporters of  Kesher. Jordan currently sits on our Board of Directors, and Dawn has taken a personal interest in Kesher’s fundraising events, about which she is very passionate.

Their family comes first, and they are both very hands on parents involved in every aspect of their children’s lives.  They support Chabad and are Patrons for Kesher’s Scholarship program.

Thabatta and Igal Mizrahi

A graduate of the University of Miami, Thabatta Mizrahi earned bachelor’s degrees in both Psychology and Special Education. Her passion for special education led to a master’s degree at New York University in the same field. She has served in various roles in the educational field, including international educational consultant for 6 years and established various programs in South Florida and South America, while continuing to serve on advisory boards for organizations that value special needs in our community. Igal Mizrahi is a graduate of Florida International University with a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology. Igal paired technology with visual arts and found this to be his medium for artistic expression. He owns an international cinematography company, and travels the world to create films for a variety of events, institutions and purposes. Thabatta was employed by Kesher 15 years ago, however her relationship with the school began even earlier, as her sister was a student at Kesher starting in 1997. Returning to Kesher six years ago as Associate Head of School, she has played an integral role in advancing curriculum, professional development, establishing a leadership team and creating a digital footprint for the organization.

While neither Thabatta nor Igal are native to Florida, from Brazil and Venezuela respectively, Miami is where they both call home. They are active members and volunteers for their children’s school, Scheck Hillel, their synagogue, Beth Torah, their JCC and The Greater Miami Jewish Federation. Thabatta and Igal believe in living a life filled with family time, community service, and dedication to continuous learning. They combine their passions through shared projects such as their favorite: conveying the message of Kesher using video artistry. They hope that their multiple projects teach their children, Thaily and Taylor, to follow their own dreams, stand for ideals and causes they are proud of and believe in, and work hard to learn, grow and engage in Tikun Olam.

As part of Best Buddies, Sara has been able to expand her involvement and truly make a difference in the lives of these students. Sara looks forward to growing her friendships, and is proud that she is able to be a part of this amazing program.
