For Schechter Westchester’s 50th anniversary, we created a special issue of Kavanot, a custom publication we produce for the school. We themed the anniversary issue “From Generation to Generation,” designing a six-page foldout cover around 25 families who have continued the Schechter Westchester tradition by sending their children to their alma mater.
With our principal photographer, Don Hamerman, we photographed the students holding yearbook photos of their parents from when they went to the school. Intense production work went into retouching all of the students into a combined layout. The supporting article focused on the parents and their memories of the school with a yearbook theme. In collaboration with the Office of Institutional Advancement, we develop the content, write, photograph, design, and publish Kavanot biannually.
