Yonaton and Merav Edrei

Community Chesed Award

Farber Hebrew Day School proudly honors Merav and Yonatan Edrei, community leaders and educators, who have served as Detroit’s Bnei Akiva Shlichim for the past four years. Yonatan, a sixteenth generation Jerusalamite, and Merav, a second generation Israeli, were motivated to come on Shlichut by their desire to unite the communities of America and Israel through language, personal connections and shared experiences. Individually and as a couple, they have worked tirelessly on behalf of our children, our communities and our school. Their personal warmth and passionate love for Am Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael has inspired leadership in our youth and strengthened our communities’ bond to Israel and its people.

As a beloved Hebrew teacher and in school Shaliach, Merav has spear headed Farber’s Israel related programming as well our community wide Yom Ha’Atzmaut celebrations. Her efforts have brought the sounds and sights of Israel to our hallways and classrooms. Yonatan, as head of Bnei Akiva of Metro Detroit has been responsible for its three local branches, mentoring its youth leaders as well as implementing Bnei Akiva’s community programming and regional events. In addition, he has served as a religious Zionist liaison to the Jewish Federation and youth liaison to local school and synagogue boards.

Merav, Yonatan and their children Aviad and Dovid will be returning to Israel this summer. Yonatan plans to continue in organizational work as an informal educator while Merav will be returning to a career as a teacher and archaeologist. We send them off with a tremendous sense of gratitude for the values of Am Yisrael, Eretz Yisrael and Ahavat Yisrael, they have so meaningfully and powerfully strengthened in the Detroit community they leave behind. ושבו בנים לגבולם
