In amazing detail, Rabbi Dr Noteh Glogauer vividly recounts the first thirty years of his life. Born in South Africa into a traditional Jewish family, his parents emigrate to Canada to escape the oppressive apartheid regime. The young Arnie G. is popular in his first (non-Jewish) school, acting the class clown and excelling at team sports. Latent anti-Semitism engenders in him feelings of being different, inspiring him to seek purpose in Jewish community life. Drawn into a career in teaching, he realises that to promote his ideas on education - nurturing individuality, striving for personal excellence, innovation, cooperation and sharing - he needs to become a school principal himself, to be the role model embodying the core values of the institution. But to be principal of an Orthodox school he must be ordained a rabbi. In achieving his ambition, Glogauer and his own young family embark on a tortuous odyssey across the continent ...
More than just a memoir - each significant anecdote is accompanied with poignant educational advice, a must have guidebook for any educator.
Rabbi Dr Noteh Glogauer began his journey as a school principal at the ripe old age of twenty-nine. He has combined his passions for truly reaching each child, striving for excellence in all he does, and inspiring those around him to do the same at three schools on two continents. He is a committed lifelong learner - a journey he continues with his wife Chaya and his beloved children, Esti, Yossi and Rochel.
