  • Winter 2021 Brandeis Medical Advisory Group 

    Brandeis Medical Advisory Group 

    Like schools around the country, Brandeis has had to marshall a variety of resources to enable students to safely attend classes in person during the pandemic. A particularly invaluable source of expertise and creative thinking has been our Medical Advisory Group.

    This group of current and former Brandeis parents, all of whom are respected physicians, has advised our Head of School and offered guidance on everything from reopening plans to our ongoing policies and procedures related to masking and vaccines. The group also holds regular all-parent forums via Zoom to address questions about the changing landscape of the pandemic and keeping families safe and healthy. They provide ongoing reassurance and expertise to the community, along with a hefty dose of compassion, patience, and good humor. 
    We are also grateful to Dr. Bob Wachter, the Chair of UCSF’s Department of Medicine and a frequent contributor to UCSF’s Medical Grand Rounds pandemic-era video series, who is the father of two Brandeis alumni. In collaboration with Dr. Wachter, we were able to partner with Mission Wellness, a specialty pharmacy who led the first of two on-site vaccine clinics for 5-11 year olds in November. These clinics are open to the general public, and we are proud to host such an important event on our campus. 

    Thank you to the members of the Medical Advisory Group! We are grateful for your dedication to the welfare of our community. 
    Dr. Rebecca Berman, Dr. Matthew Cooperberg, Dr. Erin Gordon, Dr. Louise Greenspan, Dr. Franklin Huang, Dr. Erica Lawson, Dr. Samantha Kamras, Dr. Won Kim, Dr. Aaron Kornblith, Dr. Lucy Kornblith, and Dr. Jonathan Terdiman.  

  • Fall 2021 Welcome From the Head of School

    From Head of School Dr. Dan Glass:

    We are excited to launch Brandeis Connects, a new quarterly communication tool that will make it easy to learn more about the Brandeis community present and past, stay connected with classmates, and learn about the many ways you can engage with our school. We hope it will help you continue to remain connected and be part of the sustaining and caring community for which Brandeis is known. 

    Since its founding fifty-eight years ago, Brandeis has thrived because of those who have invested time and the financial resources to support the Brandeis mission and educational experience of our students. We are grateful to have a community that gives so generously to ensure a thriving Jewish day school in San Francisco which in turn contributes to the thriving Jewish community of the Bay Area. 

    All of the ways you remain involved and connected have a positive impact on our school. We look forward to finding ways to invite your continued support and hope that you will share the ways Brandeis has made an impact on your children and families.
