Harold Reingold Award

Harold Reingold was the first Religious School Director at Congregation Emanu El. He served as Education Director for decades and retired as Education Director Emeritus after over thirty years of service to Emanu El’s students and parents. He continued teaching B’nei Mitzvah until his death in 2002. During Mr. Reingold’s tenure, he reached out to every Jewish youngster that came to the school. This was true for both those students to whom Hebrew and religious instruction came naturally and for those students who had to struggle to achieve excellence. Harold’s love extended to all of these students. Accordingly, his family established an award, in his honor, to reward students who show the greatest improvement in religious school. The Harold Reingold Award is given to one religious school student in each of the following: the 3rd-6th grades, the 7th-9th grades and the 10th-12th grades.
