YCT Grad Offers Advice on Successful Day School Merger
YCT Musmakh, Rabbi Ari Leubitz (’06), Head of School at Atlanta Jewish Academy, writes:
The Big Jewish Question on My Mind: Successfully Navigating a Merger of Day Schools
In 2016, I joined the recently formed Atlanta Jewish Academy (AJA) as Head of School. AJA was the merger of two existing schools, both long-standing institutions in Atlanta, each with a different culture and mission. I certainly had my work cut out for me, and it was a challenge. Looking back, I know it was worth all the exhaustive effort to build the school we have today.
