The Jewish High School of Connecticut cordially invites you for a Cocktail Brunch...
Keter Shem Tov recipients Dr Andrew & Elizabeth Lustbader

Andy and Elizabeth's involvement with JHSC began at the first living room preplanning meeting. From visiting model high schools, to locating an initial first site, to creating an infrastructure for good practices from a psychological vantage point - they have contributed their time, expertise and financial resources to building JHSC.

Andy, is a founding Trustee of the JHSC Board. He is a child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist as well as a pediatrician. He is an associate clinical professor at the Yale Child Study Center, runs a children's mental health clinic in Norwalk, and is the director of the Therapeutic Center for Children and Families, a private practice group in Westport. He is also the president of the Connecticut Chapter of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and a trustee of the Austen Riggs Center.

Elizabeth holds a masters in psychology and has been instrumental in designing and implementing JHSC's college counseling office, where she serves as our beloved college counselor. Together, they have uniquely impacted and enhanced our school.

Elizabeth and Andy live in Weston. They have 3 wonderful children, Susanna, Eli and Jonas.

Keynote speaker Bret Stephens

Bret Stephens writes "Global View", the Wall Street Journal's foreign affairs column, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 2013. He is the Journal's deputy editorial page editor and a member of the Wall Street Journal editorial board. Mr. Stephens joined the Journal in 1998 and left four years later to become editor in chief of the Jerusalem Post, a position he assumed at age 28. He returned to the Journal in 2008 and has since reported and provided commentary on global affairs, including the Middle East. He is the author of the 2014 book published by Sentinel books, "America in Retreat: The New Isolationism and the Coming Global Disorder". Providing a blend of the head and the heart, Bret Stephens brings together passion and incisiveness as he reflects on the role that American policy can play in creating a stable Middle East and a safe and secure Israel.
