Words Around the World

If you were a student at Emanuel School in the early 1990’s, you might remember the very special book, Words Around the World, an international collection of stories and poems by Jewish children that was published by the School in 1992.

Contributing schools were Emanuel School and Masada College in Sydney, Mount Scopus College, Bialik College and King David School in Melbourne as well as a number of Jewish schools in Canada, USA and New Zealand. Many names that appear in the book are those of past Emanuel students who are now current parents including: Jonathan Hirst and Amir Meshel – Class of 1993, twins Lisa Strous and Nikki Michel – Class of 1995, who are Leora Ross’s daughters, as well as Michelle Levitt (Drexler) – Class of 2000 and Lisa Greenberg (Shapiro) – Class of 2001.
