DKJA 1 Levine1

Helena Levine will become the new “head of school” for Donna Klein Jewish Academy in January of 2015.

BOCA RATON, FL ( — The Donna Klein Jewish Academy Head of School Search Committee and the Board of Trustees has announced that Helena Levine, MSW, will be the next head of school at DKJA. Levine’s appointment represents the successful culmination of a process that began in July 2013, during which more than 40 candidates were evaluated by the school’s Search Committee. The Committee was comprised of administrators, community members and school parents.


Levine has been an integral part of DKJA for the past nine years, the last three of which were as principal of Claire and Emanuel G. Rosenblatt High School. In her position as Principal, Levine has demonstrated outstanding organizational skills, a proven ability to lead and a passion for Judaism – all achieved in a synergistic management style that impressed and inspired tremendous confidence in the Search Committee.
“Mrs. Levine’s manifest dedication to DKJA, her desire to expand DKJA’s place in the Jewish community and her willingness to embrace new ideas clearly set her apart as the best candidate to assume this position of national prestige. We extend our thanks to current Head of School Mrs. Karen Feller for leaving a legacy of outstanding academic excellence and a commitment to Jewish life and learning that will continue with Mrs. Levine,” said newly appointed President of the Board of Trustees Genevieve Menaged, who was installed in her role on May 8, 2014.

Levine will continue in her current position as high school principal until January 2015, when DKJA will welcome her as Head of School. The hiring process for a new high school principal is currently underway. In addition to new Board President Genevieve Menaged and incoming Head of School Helena Levine, DKJA’s middle school will have a new principal, Sydney Siegel. Siegel, has held positions as middle school guidance counselor, advisory teacher and assistant middle school principal. She will begin the 2014-15 academic year as principal of the middle school.
