    By Rabbi Yair Hoffman for the Five Towns Jewish Times]

    Rutger’s is an academic powerhouse with an international reputation. It one of the best public research universities in the US and its graduate and doctoral programs are top –ranked – alongside Harvard and Yale.

    Mrs. Chedva Blumenkrantz, nee Farkas, a Kollel wife whose husband studies in Beis Medrash Gavoah of Lakewood, was chosen as valedictorian of Rutger’s Pharmaceutical program. She is a graduate of Machon Sarah TAG High School in Far Rockaway, one of the leading bais Yaakovs in the country. She is also an alumnus of BJJ, under the auspices of Rebbitzen David. Her husband, the grandson of Rabbi Avrohom Blumenkranz z”l acclaimed author of the Pesach Guide, is an alumnus of Brisk in Yerushalayim, a Talmid of Rav Avrohom Yehoshua Soloveitchik.

    Rutger’s Pharmaceutical offers a world-class faculty of scientists. Faculty members include a member of the National Academy of Sciences, principal investigators of federally funded research projects, patent holders, national medical journal editors and advisory board members, and winners of prestigious national research awards.

    “We are very very proud of Chedva, she personifies the student that we aim to develop, both in limudei kodesh, limudei chol, and Yiras Shamayim, may she continue to always make a Kiddush hashem,” remarked Mrs. Miriam Tropper, assistant principal of Machon Sara TAG High School, in Far Rockaway.

    Mrs. Blumenkrantz’s academic excellence is reflective of the superior education that Bais Yaakov schools provide across the nation.
