AJA Dedicates Noah E. Rockowitz Greenhouse and Environmental Education Center
By Robyn Lindenberg
Thursday, March 29, Austin Jewish Academy celebrated the dedication of the Noah E. Rockowitz Greenhouse and Environmental Education Center, a project of the Anne C. and Dr. Murray Rockowitz Fund. Together with the community, AJA honored the visionaries who made this dream a reality: Kathy Rosenmann, Cheryl Hersh, The family of Noah E. Rockowitz, Treva and Dr. Jeff Horwitz, Barbara Horwitz, Dr. Kenneth Horwitz, and the National Junior Honor Society Students of 2016-2018.
So many people devoted their time, love, energy, and money to accomplishing these ambitious goals. In 2016 the National Junior Honor Society of Austin Jewish Academy drew up their Green Campus Initiative and goals. In it they described the steps that had already been taken to make Austin Jewish Academy a green campus, and their goal of building a greenhouse. It was a thrill for all to see so many of these goals realized.
