“From the age of five, I saw my kindergarten teacher and said ‘I want to be like her’…and I never changed,” said Ilana Ribak, who accepted her $15,000 2016 Jewish Educator Award from the Milken Family Foundation on September 27, 2016. Ribak is a Judaic studies kindergarten teacher at Sinai Akiba Academy in Los Angeles. Ribak got her surprise award in a schoolwide assembly, ostensibly held to mark the Jewish high holy days. The announcements were made by Milken Family Foundation Executive Vice President Richard Sandler and BJE: Builders of Jewish Education Executive Director Dr. Gil Graff.
