Adam Sandler was raised in Manchester, New Hampshire, the youngest of four children to Russian Jews, and today we recognize him in honor of Jewish American Heritage month. Academically disinclined, he was frequently disciplined for his comedic antics in school. He first performed at a stand-up comedy club in Boston at age 17 at the urging of his brother. Following high school, Sandler took classes at the Lee Strasberg Theater & Film Institute in New York City and attended the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, graduating in 1988 with a bachelor’s degree in acting, and went on to have a lucrative career in Acting.

Up next in our continued series of APIDA Month Innovators we have You Tube creators Steve Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim. YouTube was created by Steve Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim in 2005. When these three friends wanted to share a video from a party, they realized they were on to something. They thought other people would want an easy way to share videos online too. The website they built quickly became the most popular online video community in the world.

General Announcements:

Today, for Jewish American Heritage Month we recognize the Barry Sisters! The term “Yiddish Swing”—a genre defined and embraced by the Barry Sisters, a singing sister duo who fused their Eastern European Jewish cultural background with the upbeat jazz of the 1930s. Popular among immigrant Jewish communities and Holocaust survivors for singing in their native tongue and for their nostalgic repertoire, the Barry Sisters introduced American jazz standards to these communities. Conversely, they also exposed mainstream audiences to Yiddish songs with their interesting arrangements, close harmonies, and the high-level musicianship of their supporting bands. Their beautiful looks and matching glamorous dresses distinguished them from other Yiddish performers and added to their appeal.

A reminder, please do not send Teams messages to juniors and freshman during the testing this morning! All non-testers, please power off your laptops. Good luck to all of those testing!
