Yeshiva University High Schools Annual Dinner of Tribute to Honor Dr. Edward Berliner

Dr. Edward Berliner will receive the Faculty Member of the Year award

Jun 11, 2008 — Yeshiva University High Schools (YUHS), comprised of The Marsha Stern Talmudical Academy / Yeshiva University High School for Boys (YUHSB) and the Samuel H. Wang Yeshiva University High School for Girls (YUHSG), will bestow Dr. Edward Berliner with the Faculty Member of the Year award. Dr. Berliner will be honored at the YUHS Annual Dinner of Tribute on Monday, June 23 at 6 pm at The New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square. Prominent members of the West Orange, NJ community, Dr. Berliner and his wife, Debbie, are proud parents of three YUHSB alumni: Avi ’99, Josh ’01, and Jon ’04.

Since joining the YUHS faculty in 2002, Dr. Berliner has enriched the lives of his students and colleagues, both academically and personally. In addition to teaching AP calculus and AP physics at YUHSB, Dr. Berliner serves as the Executive Director of Science Management and Clinical Professor of Physics at Yeshiva University and played an integral role in the construction of YUHSG’s science lab. Dr. Berliner is also director of the newly formed YUHSB Honors College — a program that offers select students an enriching cultural, educational, and religious experience.

“It is a privilege to be honoring Dr. Edward Berliner,” said Miriam Goldberg, chairman of the YUHS Board of Trustees. “He is a wonderful example of a committed faculty member who perpetuates our high standards and encourages our students to reach their greatest potential.”

Both students and Dr. Berliner are appreciative of their time in the classroom together. “I learn so much from all of the students and am constantly amazed at their insights and ingenuity,” says Dr. Berliner. “Because of them, I come into school each day looking forward to learning something new.”
