Episode 3: The Sussman Family
Episode 3: The Sussman Family
A man graduates from Yavneh in the 60's. His kids attend the school in the 80's and 90's. Then his wife starts teaching at Yavneh in the mid 90's. Then one of his sons starts to teach at Yavneh in 2000's. Eventually his grandchildren attend the school a few years later.  This may sound like a riddle, but it is not! This is the Toldot of The Sussman Family as it relates to their time at Yavneh.  Following the order of the above narrative: Stephen Sussman graduated Yavneh in 1962. Stephen's sons Chaim and Josh Sussman attended the school in the 80's-90's. Stephen's wife, Barbara Sussman, officially started teaching at Yavneh in 1994. She taught at Yavneh for 12 years. Then, Chaim Sussman started teaching at Yavneh in 2005 and has been teaching here ever since. Currently, Stephen's grandchildren attend Yavneh and are part of the classes of '27 and '28. Tune into this episode to hear the stories of this timeline come alive. This episode sheds light on how a 3 (plus!) generation family all have strong ties to Yavneh's Nest.
