From Hebrew Academy to Oxford Academy: Celebrating Omid's Journey

Thursday, 3 August, 2023 - 9:43 am

It feels like just yesterday when an adorable young boy named Omid, newly arrived from Iran, stepped into our Hebrew Academy campus. His zest for learning was evident even then, as shown in this photo of him receiving an award at a Rosh Chodesh assembly. Today, Omid is a high schooler at Oxford Academy, aspiring for a medical career and making waves with his insightful writing!


Omid recently penned an article on the significant issue of sleep deprivation impacting teens like himself. Published in JLife, his piece not only raises awareness but also suggests practical solutions that could help. By contributing to the community through his writing, Omid embodies the spirit of community service that we emphasize at the Hebrew Academy.

At the Hebrew Academy, we take immense pride in seeing our students like Omid grow, chase their dreams, and contribute to the community. Our mission is to provide a nurturing environment where students can develop academically, emotionally, and spiritually. Seeing Omid's journey unfold is a testament to the success of our mission.

We also want to extend a hearty nachas to Omid's parents, whose unwavering support, guidance, and partnership have always been evident during his years at the Hebrew Academy. We always love when Omid visits the campus and look forward to continuing to watch him grow.

We invite you to join us in reading Omid's important piece and engaging in the conversation about teen health. Let's celebrate the journey of our students and the transformative power of education.
